Speak its Name! Quotations by and about Gay Men and Women

Edited by Christopher Tinker. Introduction by Simon Callow.

This collection of quotations by and about gay people celebrates the advances of the international LGBT community over the past 50 years. Amusing observations by Noël Coward, Tallulah Bankhead, Quentin Crisp, Boy George and Ian McKellen are interspersed with interviews with Dusty Springfield, Alan Bennett, Freddie Mercury, Clive Barker, George Michael and William S. Burroughs, and diary entries by Kenneth Williams, Joe Orton, W.H. Auden and John Maynard Keynes. John Gielgud and Alan Turing’s accounts of being arrested contrast with letters from Violet Trefusis to her lover Vita Sackville-West, King James I to the Marquis of Buckingham, and Benjamin Britten to his partner Peter Pears. Contributions by Oscar Wilde, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, John Wolfenden, Field Marshal Montgomery, Lord Arran, Margaret Thatcher, Waheed Alli and David Cameron demonstrate enormous developments in gay rights. Reflections from celebrity icons such as Julie Andrews and David Beckham are also featured, alongside a wealth of reproductions.
