    Just for the sake of clarification, “In The Life” is aired on PBS affiliates. Logo occasionally will run rebroadcasts, but the show’s home has always been on PBS.

    That was fascinating. I find LGBT history very engrossing. I can’t imagine what it was like to be an out gay man back than. It makes being out now look very easy.

    Thanks for this post, especially since in chicago at least, ‘in the life,’ is on past midnight, on sundays, once in a blue moon. sucks, that. by the way, my boyfriend gave me the book for christmas — weird, i know — and it is absolutely fascinating. steward was a horndog – must have had sex with hundreds of guys, including Bosie, Rudolph Valentino, famous literary folks, etc. an amazing book and quite a life, as well.

    this was a terrific book; a must read for all gays. when you think we have it tough now, they had it even tougher in the 20-60s. also what a character.

    Browsing the book I found myself agreeing with Cocteau and the rest of the French gays who found him tawdry. No style.

    A spectacular and very important book. I got it for a trip to Berkeley (where Steward lived and worked toward the end of his life) in August, and missed most of what was going on with friends because I couldn’t put it down.

    This book is great!! I couldn’t put it down and living in Chicago it was especially touching and connecting. I highly recommend it to every gay man to read. It really changes the impression of what it once meant to be gay.. I hope we have more historians like Professor Spring, in capturing the lost history of LGBT peoples.
