Allan Berube free


"D'Emilio and Freedman deserve our unreserved thanks for rescuing these significant Bérubé writings from obscurity, and for making his courageous life's story available to us all. My Desire for History will be a rich and thought-provoking addition to your library. Do yourself a favor and buy it."
-Gay City News

"Particularly engaging."
-Gay & Lesbian Review This anthology pays tribute to Allan Berube (1946-2007), a self-taught historian and MacArthur Fellow who was a pioneer in the study of lesbian and gay history in the United States. D'Emilio and Freedman have selected sixteen of his most important essays which provide a retrospective on Berube's life and work while documenting the emergence of a grassroots lesbian and gay community history movement in the 1970s and 1980s.

I respect Berube for his research on lesbian/gay participation in WWII, but there is one essay in this collection that makes me see Red (pun intended). This is "How Gay Stays White and What Kind of White It Stays." It is ironic that Berube used to live in a trailer park, because you know that White people who commit the ultimate crime of identifying with their own race are generally imagined as living in trailer parks. Berube did not identify with his race. He had his homosexuality to identify with, and we all know that White gay men are expected to identify solely with their sexuality and never, never, never with their evil, wicked, mean and nasty race. Berube's conflict about his working-class origins and middle-class destination didn't help. Well, what is wrong about White gay men who identify both with their sexuality and with their impossibly evil race? I, for example, identify with both, and I don't even live in a trailer park. It doesn't faze me one bit to know that my race is impossibly evil, because my sexuality is also considered to be impossibly evil, and I couldn't care less.

I met Allan Bérubé on several occasions. He was charming, intelligent, and articulate. His 1990 book, Coming Out Under Fire, was an important pioneering work. Unfortunately, he seemed to have lost his bearings after that and, despite substantial support from the McArthur Foundation, he seemed unable to find his way. Allan Bérubé died at the age of 61. His friends have tried to make him into an icon of "community history," exalting his working-class origins, which are less clear than they claim. In fact, there is no "community history," only history.

It is probably best to skip this book, and acquire Coming Out Under Fire instead--it is an enduring achievement.
