Into the 1980s, with the rise of black lesbian feminism, black gay activists too explored myriad lives at the intersection of social difference. Joseph Beam joined the thriving gay community in Philadelphia, worked at the gay bookstore, and enjoyed gay nightlife. Yet he also felt racially isolated, and endeavoured to create a new identity politics and alternative community.
