Logical familyLogical family : a memoir by Armistead Maupin

Born in the mid-twentieth century and raised in the heart of conservative North Carolina, Maupin realized that the South was too small for him and took a road journey that led him from a homoerotic navy initiation ceremony in the jungles of Vietnam to San Francisco in the early 1970s. His life and travels became an epic urban saga, Tales of the City, which provided him with a very public coming-out platform, chronicled the evolution of America's queer community over the last four decades, and inspired millions to claim their own lives.
