RV-027 Anita Butler
Title: Gradual Opening of the Collective Closed Mind The original book, Lady Boys, Tom Boys, Rent Boys, discussed the misconception of the acceptance of homosexuality in Thailand. After reading the book, I felt I could not comment on life in Thailand, but look closer to home for inspiration. Having been close to New York and Provincetown a good part of my life, I wanted to show, simply, how our perception and/or acceptance of gay life in the United States has changed from the 1950s through the 1990s. As the number of closed minds has decreased each decade, so the number of pages glued shut decreases as the book progresses.
