We’re Here, We’re Queer, a new book by Chicago writer Owen Keehnen, contains more than 100 interviews with activists, artists, writers, and others who helped lay the groundwork for the current LGBTQ world.  Many of the subjects died soon after these interviews took place.

Included in this collection are conversations with Quentin Crisp, Edmund White, Samuel Steward, The Daughters of Bilitis, Harry Hay, Dorothy Allison, Dick Sargent, David Wojnarowicz, E. Lynn Harris, Tommy Tune, Joan Nestle, Holly Woodlawn, RuPaul, Sarah Schulman, Paul Monette, Chuck Renslow, Jerry Herman, Sapphire, Susie Bright, Michael Cunningham, Dennis Cooper, Janis Ian, Pam Tent, Jewelle Gomez, Michelangelo Signorile, George Chauncey, Camille Paglia, Scott Heim, Scott O’Hara, Shyam Selvadurai, Darry Yates Rist, Felice Picano, Scott McPherson, Ethan Mordden, Alison Bechdel, Kate Bornstein, Joan Jett Blakk, and many more.
