I really loved this book when I was coming out in the early 80s. I think it was because Stephen was butchish and she didn't try to be anything other than what she was. She braved all the hatred of society at a time when it was pretty much unheard of to be gay. I felt the same way about "Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold," the book with the oral testimony of the pre-Stonewall community of dykes in Buffalo. If they hadn't come out, it probably would have been harder for all of us later. Admittedly Stephen isn't happy, but she is brave and she's a hero to me, as if Radclyffe Hall.
