Lgbt Milwaukee

By Michail Takach
Over the past 75 years, gays and lesbians have experienced tremendous social change in America. Gay and lesbian culture, once considered a twilight world that could not be spoken of in daylight, has become today s rainbow families, marriage equality victories, and record-breaking pride celebrations. For a medium-size Rust Belt city with German Protestant roots, Milwaukee was an unlikely place for gay and lesbian culture to bloom before the Stonewall Riots. However, Milwaukee eventually had as many if not more known LGBT+ gathering places as Minneapolis or Chicago, ranging from the back rooms of the 1960s to the video bars of the 1980s to the guerrilla gay bars of today."


    REVIEW QUOTES
"When author Michail Takach pitched us his history book LGBT Milwaukee, we agreed politely to look at it. Then we saw the wonderful photos and read the beautifully researched and very moving text. The book, consisting mostly of photos and detailed captions, takes us from the bad old days of the deep closet to drag queens most glorious, to mega-discos, and beyond. With over 150 images, many never before seen, the rich LGBT history of Milwaukee comes alive." "The Advocate"
