This pioneering study breaks new ground in presenting the gay community's history by sporting one of its more distinctive branches—molly houses. In this updated edition, with two new chapters, Rictor Norton digs deeper into both past and present to rediscover the original foundations of the molly subculture and challenges traditional notions by suggesting that it was primarily composed of the working class—blacksmiths, milkmen, publicans, and shoemakers. More extravagant personalities are investigated as well, such as dramatists Samuel Foote and Isaac Bickerstaff, and the Rev. John Church, denounced for blessing gay "marriages."
About the Author: Rictor Norton gained his Ph.D. from Florida State University for a study of homosexual themes in English Renaissance literature, which became the basis for his book The Homosexual Literary Tradition. He edited a highly-acclaimed issue of College English devoted to The Homosexual Imagination. He moved to London in 1973 and was an editor for Gay News from 1974-1978. He is currently a freelance writer and editor.
