The Secret Public: How LGBTQ Performers Shaped Popular Culture (1955–1979)

by Jon Savage - £22.00  Faber & Faber (2024)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780571358373 | ISBN 10: 0571358373

A monumental history of the LGBTQ influence on popular culture, from the award-winning, Sunday Times-bestselling author.
 
An electrifying look at key moments in music and entertainment history between 1955 and 1979, which helped move gay culture from the margins to the mainstream and changed the face of pop forever – from the ambiguous sexuality of stars such as Little Richard in the 1950s through to David Bowie, glam rock and Sylvester’s ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’.
 
The Secret Public is a searching examination of the fortitude and resilience of the gay community through the lens of popular music and culture; it reflects on the freedom found in divergence from the norm and reminds us of the need to be vigilant against those seeking to roll back the rights of marginalised groups.
