Love this book so much. The lid of a sarcophagus cracked open and the lesbian past leapt out, still breathing, still sexy. My first play was inspired by Lister's diaries.

His visionary poems show me again how daring great writing can be, challenging our very sense of who we are. Not just their bodies, but something deeper. But yes, also, a thorough appreciation of their bodies in a way that invokes no shame. Myles, a poet, has a beautiful and dark way with words that soaks you in their world—and makes it your queer existence too. I understood that it was possible for a queer woman to write the madness of love, to strike the right words together and burn up the page. And I will , I thought. I will. Bechdel sculpts the marble of Story with the chisels of mystery, poetry, and myth.
Rereading it now, I thought, 'This is magic. A generation earlier, Delany had been a gay teenager living in the East Village with his best friend, family, and spouse, the poet Marilyn Hacker.

About this book Introduction Lambda literary award finalist, Same-Sex Love in India presents a stunning array of writings on same-sex love from over years of Indian literature. Translated from more than a dozen languages and drawn from Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and modern fictional traditions, these writings testify to the presence of same-sex love in various forms since ancient times, without overt persecution.
This collection defies both stereotypes of Indian culture and Foucault's definition of homosexuality as a 19th-century invention, uncovering instead complex discourses of Indian homosexuality, rich metaphorical traditions to represent it, and the use of names and terms as early as medieval times to distinguish same-sex from cross-sex love.
