It's refreshing to hear of gay and lesbian ghosts, though in fact that description does not fit all the entries. Many of the stories are of ghosts or imprinted memories of others in gay bars and hotels. Each tends to be long on the history behind the haunting and rather short on the details of the haunting itself. Nevertheless this is a fun, light, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant book. You will run into some celebrities: Piers Gaveston, Lizzie Borden, Rudolph Valentino, Clifton Webb, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and Liberace. My personal favorite is the ghost in an English pub who likes to pull at men's pants zippers. The most moving tells of crowds of men fleeing a gay club in 18th century London, leaving the imprint of their terror on the streets. The stories, assuming of course they are true, attest to the existence of GLBTQ people throughout history, but the stories are also full of regret that so many loves and lives had to be clandestine or even unfulfilled because of society's oppression.
