My Desire for History: Essays in Gay, Community, and Labor History


This collection of essays pays tribute to the pioneering gay historian Allan Bérubé
(1946-2007). Best known for his groundbreaking book, Coming Out Under Fire: The
History of Gay Men and Women in World War II, Bérubé wrote extensively on the
history of sexual politics and the relationship between sexuality, class, and race. John
D’Emilio, professor of History and Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of
Illinois at Chicago, and Estelle Freedman of Stanford University, have selected 16 of
Bérubé’s most important essays, providing a retrospective on his life and work, while
documenting the emergence of a grassroots lesbian and gay history movement.
