Synopsis:

Coming Out Together is an insider's chronicle of the Asian and Pacific Islander queer women and transgendered people's (APLBT) movement of San Francisco and its transformation from traditional silent minority to public advocate of gay rights and same-sex marriage.

The account begins with the origins of identity politics in the 1960s when people of colour chose to organize separately from white people, creating people of colour empowerment movements on one side and white anti-war, women's and gay/lesbian movements on the other.

This indispensable book is the story of a marginalized group that underwent together, an identity, community and movement building process that transformed individual, family and community traditions and loyalties. Today, APLBT people are visible, vocal and proud in the Asian American and gay communities.
