Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War II by Alan Bérubé
Tuesday, June 22, 5:00pm ET

Intrepid Book Club will be honoring Pride by reading the groundbreaking classic, Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War II by Alan Bérubé. Bérubé tells the complex story of the gay and lesbian service members who fought for their country in war and for their right to do so. We will be joined by Michael Stevens and Johnathan Milard of the Intrepid Museum, and Ashton Stewart, Navy veteran and SAGEvets program manager, who have been collecting and teaching LGBTQ+ service members’ stories.

"Both a classic in the field and still the definitive work on its subject. Nothing surpasses it."--Regina Kunzel, author of Criminal Intimacy
