Description
Information
A Biography of Naomi Jacob, Fred Barnes and Arthur Marshall.

'Three Queer Lives' contains the first biographies of two remarkable men and one quite extraordinary woman. Each of them countered sexual prejudice by behaving as if it didn't exist. They made the best of their queerness, at a time when male homosexuals were regarded as criminals, and lesbians as freaks of nature.

In a long autobiographical introduction - a fourth queer life, perhaps - Paul Bailey describes the changing circumstances faced by homosexuals in Britain in his lifetime, and how he came to be fascinated by these very different human beings, all gay in more sense than one.
