Wearing History

As today is National Coming Out Day, let's do a special Swag Thursday giveaway with Steve Goula's Wearing History: T-Shirts From The Gay Rights Movement. T-shirt activism has long been one of the most visible means of letting the world know who we are and Goula's book covers the history of T-shirt activism from Stonewall to ACT-UP to today.
The T-shirt is a part of Americana, and nowhere is this reflected more than in the gay and lesbian community's struggle for civil rights. Through imagination, wit, and a passion for equality, the activists who wrote, designed-and more importantly-wore the shirts helped define a movement. From the sad to the troubling, the poignant to the humorous, this is the definitive pop culture chronicler of our lives.
Wearing History is available on paperback now via Amazon. To win your copy, comment on this post. Only your first comment counts and please remember to leave your email address. Publicists: if you'd like to take part in giveaways on JMG, please email me.
