    What I really thought about the book, in my opinion was detailed and I like the pictures It talked about Greenwich Village in New York City and the Gay Pride Parade being a huge event I learned something about the Gay Pride Pride but I never knew how much it would impact so many people coming out There were different types of Gays mentioned in the book If you noticed the gay community, Bisexual community, and Transgender community, they all fought for their rights in the streets of New York What I really thought about the book, in my opinion was detailed and I like the pictures It talked about Greenwich Village in New York City and the Gay Pride Parade being a huge event I learned something about the Gay Pride Pride but I never knew how much it would impact so many people coming out There were different types of Gays mentioned in the book If you noticed the gay community, Bisexual community, and Transgender community, they all fought for their rights in the streets of New York City I loved learning about the history of the Gay Pride Parade in New York City

    O Neal s photos were historically interesting, but Allen Ginsberg s handwritten captions were inane Not a whole lot here for me as a queer woman, I m afraid.
