Leading the Parade

Conversations with America’s Most Influential Lesbian and Gay Men


(from the cover of the book)

Lesbians and gay men undeniably occupy a very different place in American society than they did in the mid-1940s. Leading the Parade traces the evolution of the gay and lebian movement through the personal profiles and stories of nearly forty individuals whose daring efforts changed gay and straightAmerica and society's attitude toward homsexuality in the twentieth centruy. Paul D. Cain traveled the country interviewing these artists, activists, and pioneers to shed light on the courage and intellect that has resulted in a more accepting worldview of homoseuxality.

Leading the Parade has been reviewed by Thom Nickels in the Jan. 2003 issue of Lambda Book Report, a publication of the Lambda Literary Foundation, page 15–16.
