A Queer Love Story

A Queer Love Story

UBC Press | May 1, 2017 | 650 pages

A Queer Love Story presents the first fifteen years of letters between Jane Rule ? novelist and the first widely recognized ?public lesbian? in North America ? and Rick B?bout, journalist and editor with the Toronto-based Body Politic, an important incubator of LGBT thought and activism. Rule lived in a remote rural community on Galiano Island, British Columbia, but wrote a column for the magazine. B?bout resided in and was devoted to Toronto's gay village. Both were transplanted Americans. At turns poignant, scintillating, and incisive, their exchanges include ruminations on queer life and the writing life even as they document some of the most pressing LGBT issues of the ?80s and ?90s, including HIV/AIDs, censorship, and state policing of desire.
