Warm, affectionate, and everyday descriptions of gay life have not always been easy to find within literature—or health care. Indeed, diverse sexualities have often been pathologised within health, and legislated against. Against that backdrop it seems unlikely a book series that celebrates sexuality might become an international bestseller. Yet, that is exactly what has happened. Although not without incident. In 1985, the UK’s Gay’s The Word bookshop in London was eagerly awaiting the delivery of Tales of the City—a novel by Armistead Maupin about the loves and lives of a group of friends in San Francisco.
