Stand by Me
Stand by Me The Forgotten History of Gay Liberation By Downs, Jim Book - 2016

This series of loosely connected essays is a reclamation of 1970s gay history. Downs argues that the predominant narrative on gay liberation of this time focuses almost exclusively on promiscuity - which then led to the AIDS crisis. In this book, he points to other developments such as intellectual, spiritual, and even community achievements. A good corrective to the "Gay Sex in the 70s" shorthand.
