|Book: “The Portable Queer: Homo History: A Compilation of Events that Shook and Shaped the Gay World”
Author: Erin McHugh
About: “Homo History” contained lots of interesting information. It was written very colloquially and was easy to read. The writer’s voice came through clearly. However, I did not find a fair number or phrases or certain thoughts necessarily apropos. Certain words, phrases, and ideas- in my opinion- could have been approached in a more politically correct manner. For example, the word “transgendered” was used, but “transgender” should have been used instead. In sum, “Homo History” touched on a lot of different things and was a good overview, but should be read with a grain of salt.
