Drawing from surveys of political attitudes and voting patterns among gays, lesbians, and bisexuals, Bailey's study is a revealing window into how sexual identity has fostered political alliances. The book investigates mayoral voting patterns in America's three largest cities-New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.


The author assesses the political impact of the lesbian and gay movement on urban politics in the US and explores the usefulness of identity in urban political studies, combining theory, analysis of aggregate data, and the exploration of specific case studies in policymaking.
