Gay Day: Golden Age of the Christophe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book chronicles the NYC gay parade from the informal, spontaneous ritual held soon after the Stonewall Riots up to the more orchestrated, glamorous parades of the 80s, before AIDS turned the parade into a political necessity. The photos were captioned by Allen Ginsberg, then were put away in a box, forgotten until now. The preface, photographs and their captions have never been published before. An introduction puts the photographs in context with the events preceeding and following the parade, making the book an invaluable piece of history for NYC, Gays, and gay parade.
