Top LGBT Film History Books

In case you're ever looking to find the best LGBT film history books... Look no further than this handy Amazon List I just compiled as an accompaniment to my forthcoming essay in the Oxford Handbook of Queer Cinema.

Start with classics like: Vito Russo's The Celluloid Closet (Harper & Row; Revised edition: 1987); Now You See It (Routledge; Second Edition: 2002) by Richard Dyer; Images in the Dark (Plume; 1996) edited by Raymond Murray; The Lavender Screen (Citadel; Revised Edition: 2001) by Boze Hadleigh. And carry on with exciting new volumes like: Sisters in the Life: A History of Out African American Lesbian Media Making (Duke University; 2018) edited by Yvonne Welbon and Alexandra Juhasz.

Okay, actually, I could mention one more: my Lambda Award nominated, The Queer Movie Poster Book (Chronicle Books; 2005).
