Rakestraw Books & The Rossmoor LGBT Alliance Present Eric Cervini

From Eric Cervini, a young Harvard- and Cambridge-trained historian, comes The Deviant's War: The Homosexual vs. the United States of America, the secret history of the fight for gay rights that began a generation before Stonewall.

In 1957, Frank Kameny, a rising astronomer working for the U.S. Defense Department in Hawaii, received a summons to report immediately to Washington, D.C. The Pentagon had reason to believe he was a homosexual, and after a series of humiliating interviews, Kameny, like countless gay men and women before him, was promptly dismissed from his government job. Unlike many others, though, Kameny fought back.
