Faderman is known as the foremother of gay and lesbian studies, yet few would suspect she was the illegitimate child of a guilt-obsessed single mother, that she tried to please her mom by becoming a movie star, or that she… worked her way through college as a stripper. Faderman's mother and aunt left Latvia in 1923 to work in New York and send back money to their family, but neither could save their loved ones from Hitler's Holocaust, which tormented Faderman's mother endlessly. Trying to make her life meaningful and redeem her mother's suffering, Faderman eventually entered the University of California at Berkeley, ultimately achieving a Ph.D., a baby, a lover, and becoming a groundbreaking scholar of gay and lesbian studies. Some strong language and descriptions of violence, descriptions of sex. 2003.
