Collection of letters written to the first openly gay magazine in the United States. Long before the Stonewall riots, ONE magazine—the first openly gay magazine in the United States—offered a positive viewpoint of homosexuality and encouraged gay people to resist discrimination and persecution. Despite a limited monthly circulation of only a few thousand, the magazine influenced the substance, character, and tone of the early American gay rights movement. This book is a collection of letters written to the magazine, a small number of which were published in ONE, but most of them were not. The letters candidly explore issues such as police harassment of gay and lesbian communities, antigay job purges, and the philosophical, scientific, and religious meanings of homosexuality. “[a] remarkable book … about gay and lesbian life in the 1950s and ’60s.” — Los Angeles Times

The narratives in this book show us the common elements in the coming-out process as well as the unique experiences individuals have as they move through the process of self-acceptance and queer identification.

Coming Out as LGBT is one of the most powerful things a queer (non-heterosexual) person can do. Not only is it an important personal step in identity transformation and self-acceptance, it is, according to Stephen Murray, the most important criterion for membership in the gay community. The narratives in this book show us the common elements in the coming-out process as well as the unique experiences individuals have as they move through the process of self-acceptance and queer identification. The stories highlight not only the struggles in coming out, but also the joys that many experience in the course of this process. The support of family and friends, or lack of it, as a significant factor in the coming-out process is vividly illustrated. Also, the role played by the college/university campus environment is demonstrated in the stories. The author's coming-out story, although it occurred at a much later age than those of the students in this book, adds an interesting dimension to the stories since his coming out also happened in the context of a college environment where he was a professor. The book ends with a list of insights that come from studying these narratives.

Even as substantial legal and social victories are being celebrated within the gay rights movement, much of working-class America still exists outside the current narratives of gay liberation. In Steel Closets, Anne Balay draws on oral history interviews with forty gay, lesbian, and transgender steelworkers, mostly living in northwestern Indiana, to give voice to this previously silent and invisible population. She presents powerful stories of the intersections of work, class, gender, and sexual identity in the dangerous industrial setting of the steel mill. The voices and stories captured by Balay--by turns alarming, heroic, funny, and devastating--challenge contemporary understandings of what it means to be queer and shed light on the incredible homophobia and violence faced by many: nearly all of Balay's narrators remain closeted at work, and many have experienced harassment, violence, or rape. Through the powerful voices of queer steelworkers themselves, Steel Closets provides rich insight into an understudied part of the LGBT population, contributing to a growing body of scholarship that aims to reveal and analyze a broader range of gay life in America.
