but when i'm done with that, are there any studies on french, dutch, spanish or italian movements worth reading?
The best (only?) book about the homosexual culture in Spain during the 20th c. is De Sodoma a Chueca: una historia cultural de la homosexualidad en España en el siglo XX from Alberto Mira Nouselles. AFAIK it has not been translated into English.
and maybe it's not really dealing with the gay "movement", but i just stumbled across this, which seems like a good read: "'los invisibles' : a history of male homosexuality in spain, 1850-1940" by richard cleminson and francisco vasquez garcia.
I have also discovered (and bought) lately "Amor sáfico e socrático" (1922) from Arlindo Camilo Monteiro. Supposedly it has some history about Portuguese and Spanish "sodomy". I'll be reading it in September.
You can also find some good information online at "La senda escondida" (http://users.ipfw.edu/jehle/DEISENBE/Other_Hispanic_Topics/escondida.pdf) It takes a special interest on literature.
The scroll of On the Road is on display in the British Library at the moment along with some books on Kerouac, Ginsberg and so forth and that rather reawakened how that movement, before Stonewall, was documented and catalogued by librarians, which was part of the 1975 matter of the first exhibition on the literature of Gay Liberation, corated by Richard Tarry in Islington Public Library, not unrecently the case of a bacon sandwich matter, aka Joe. Recently there was an exhibition of their artworks in books, I hadn't realised how much more than a bacon sandwich it had been.
There are three threads here, perhaps they should have been disconnected posts.
