Winner of Randy Shilts Award In the half century before the Nazis rose to power, Berlin became the undisputed gay capital of the world. Activists and medical professionals made it a city of firsts-the first gay journal, the first homosexual rights organization, the first Institute for Sexual Science, the first sex reassignment surgeries-exploring and educating themselves and the rest of the world about new ways of understanding the human condition. In this fascinating examination of how the uninhibited urban culture of Berlin helped create our categories of sexual orientation and gender identity, Robert Beachy guides readers through the past events and developments that continue to shape and influence our thinking about sex and gender to this day.

Migration and Domestic Work:The Collective Organisation of Women and their Voices from the City Gaye Yilmaz/ Sue Ledwith
Geoff is in the city, living the gay life to the hilt, when his father´s death convinces him to return to the family farm. Discovering a young Amish man asleep in his barn, Geoff learns that Eli is spending a year away from the community before accepting baptism into the church. Despite their mutual attraction, Geoff is determined not to become involved with him, but Eli has discovered that Geoff shares his feelings and begins to court him, neatly capturing first Geoff´s attention and then his heart. Their budding relationship is threatened by closed-minded, gossipy relatives and society at large, a whole new world to Eli, and he must decide whether to return to the community, his family, and the world and future he knows, or to stay with Geoff and have faith in the power of love. 1.
