Interview with James T Sears on his book
"Rebels, Rubyfruit, and Rhinestones," 2001
my opinion, if you want to read one single book in order to get an understanding
of Houston queer history up until the 1979 March on Washington, this
is the book.
On the KPFT show "Lesbian & Gay Voices" (now called "Queer
Voices) Jone Devlin
and I were fortunate to interview Dr. Sears shortly after the book's
October 2, 2001.
Quote (at 10:20): "If Stonewall was the match
that started the modern
gay liberation movement, then Anita Bryant was really the wild fire
across the entire country."
