Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement

Committed to Home

Edited by Sheila Morris

Foreword by Harlan Greene

These are the intimate stories of twenty-one ordinary citizens in South Carolina who became committed to making their state a better place to live and work and raise their families in the period from 1984 – 2014. They are people with similarities and differences, but most of them grew up believing they were the only gay people in the universe. How and why they became the organizers of the queer movement in a rural conservative southern state “will add a crucial piece to the complex puzzle of postwar queer activism in the United States.” (preface)
