Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiographies
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.
