As a slick-fielding Little Leaguer in Marin County, California, CHRIS BULL dreamed of being a baseball player until he realized that he couldn’t get around on a good fastball. Trading his bat for a pen, he became a journalist, so he could instead cover the game—as well as many of his other interests. Washington correspondent for The Advocate, Bull is co-author of The Accidental Activist and Perfect Enemies. He is editor of the nonfiction anthologies Come Out Fighting, Witness to Revolution, While the World Sleeps, and co-editor of At Ground Zero. An Alicia Patterson Journalism Fellow, he lives in Washington, D.C., where he roots for his beloved San Francisco Giants from the other side of the country.

Gays and lesbians have spent much of the last 100 years as outcasts and pariahs in their own families, communities, and nation. In Come Out Fighting, Chris Bull -- Washington correspondent for The Advocate magazine -- has assembled a collection of the most important and influential writing, taken from both the gay and straight press, which forms the basis of the political movement which has reached its zenith only recently. Come Out Fighting contains essential writing on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues from U.S. independent and alternative progressive journals. From Walt Whitman and Sigmund Freud, to Michael Foucault and Elizabeth Birch, this volume is a collection of the best and brightest authors on gay life, politics and culture, from the earliest days of the liberation movement. The essays provocatively illuminate the remaining obstacles to full gay and lesbian equality, and point the way toward a future where there will truly be liberty and justice for all, regardless of sexual orientation.
