Abstract
 
Description
Rock the Sham tells the story of the persistent campaign waged by a small group of Irish lesbians and gay men, along with their American supporters, to take their place in the world's largest St. Patrick's Day celebration. Banned and slandered by church and state alike, the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization persisted for over ten years to fight a campaign for inclusion, against the enormous powers of the Church, City Hall, and the Ancient Order of Hibernians in New York. Veteran activist Maguire tells the amazing, funny, and terrible story of this epic grass-roots political battle. Rock the Sham! is Anne Maguire's personal account of what happened when a small group, mostly immigrants, decided to start an organization for Irish lesbians and gay men in New York, and then defiantly refused to go back in the closet. - from Amzon
