Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiographies

David Bergman, Joan Larkin, and Raphael Kadushin, Series EditorsGraphic reads: Winner of the 2002 and 2011 Publisher’s Service Award from the Lambda Literary Foundation in recognition of our exemplary work in the field of LGBT literature.

This award-winning series aims to represent the full range of LGBT autobiography. It encompasses a diversity of autobiographies that cross all ethnic and national boundaries—from new autobiographies by fresh voices to memoirs by established contemporary writers, from posthumous and historically important autobiographies to reprints of classic autobiographies.

Dedicated to embracing the full range of LGBT experience, Living Out recognizes that autobiography is a crucial gay genre—an essential way of reclaiming individual lives and telling a larger, collective story.

Please send all inquiries to David Bergman, Joan Larkin, or UW Press Executive Editor Raphael Kadushin.

Lawfully Wedded Husband
How My Gay Marriage Will Save the American Family
Joel Derfnero

“If, as Marshall McLuhan once taught us, the medium is the message, then Derfner’s medium—this lovely, discursive amalgamation of wit and smarts—is indeed his message about how to stay happy, sane, and honest in whatever situation one finds oneself in.”
—Philip Gambone, author of Travels in a Gay Nation: Portraits of LGBTQ Americans

Autobiography of My Hungers
Rigoberto González

“An unforgettable portrait of the artist as a young immigrant gay poet. These brief, passionate chapters are filled with rare courage, raw honesty, and the uncommon beauty of a life spent yearning for consolation and hope. Absolutely arresting.”
—Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire
