We all too often think of LGBT history as beginning with Stonewall. In Chicago Whispers, we are given a picture of the vibrant and dangerous place that was gay Chicago before revolution. Everyone, every genre, every subculture is covered, proving yet again, no matter what, we find a way to thrive. Extensively researched and well written, this book is what Jonathan Katz’s Gay American History would have been had it covered only one great American city.
