KATIE GILMARTIN at Books Inc. in The Castro

With a PhD in cultural studies from Yale, with an emphasis in Queer history, former professor of Queer Studies at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley, Katie Gilmartin shares her first work of fiction, Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery. A brilliantly conceived and artfully illustrated murder mystery that serves as a revelatory secret history of San Francisco’s Queer underground of the 1950s, Murder, My Love is fueled by a 1951 California Supreme Court ruling that homosexuals had a right to congregate, and is complete with a brief summary of gay history in the United States and California in particular.
