description

Daring To Be A Man Among Men is the first biography on Lou Sullivan, the widely influential trans activist from the 1980s. Born in the Midwest, Sullivan became active in the radically-inclusive Gay People's Union in Milwaukee during his teenage years. Later on he moved to San Francisco where he navigated a larger gay community more divided among subcultures. Sullivan emerged as a leader in the west coast city, educating gay people and doctors alike on trans lives. His lasting impact was his insistence that gender identity did not determine sexual orientation. Gay and lesbian transsexual people existed, he declared. Sullivan died of AIDS related complications in 1991. This biography tells the history of a "founding father" of the late-20th and 21st century transgender movement and is a must read for anyone interested in 20th century trans history.
