"In Exile: The History and Lore Surrounding New Orleans Gay Culture
and Its Oldest Gay Bar" is the first comprehensive treatment of the
history of gay New Orleans. Drawn primarily on the recollections of
dozens of gay men and women, Frank Perez and Jeffrey Palmquist
weave a fascinating narrative of how gay New Orleans evolved
throughout the twentieth century. In addition to showing the
incredible and previously unrecognized contributions gay people
have made to New Orleans culture, In Exile also illuminates the
darkness in which ordinary gay people lived secret double-lives for
decades and chronicles the social forces which ultimately enabled
gay New Orleanians to live openly and honestly. Written with
graceful insight and thoughtful perception, In Exile is not only a
captivating history book, it is also a beautiful meditation on the
intersection of place and identity.
