This book contains a dozen essays by a range of established scholars and performing artists on issues in post-1969 American gay and lesbian theatre and drama, the period after a raid at the Stonewall Inn helped spawn a 'gay revolution'. The collection covers playwrights, millennial dramatists, and actors while exploring the history of gay-themed theatre and drama, the breadth of stage roles, and the dramatic representation of homosexual characters from various perspectives. These include the impact of AIDS, contemporary American politics, images of homophobia, gay-themed plays aimed at Theatre for Youth audiences, and other topics.
