22). 27) of the homophile movement. Gay identity thus emerged as an alternative to homosexual identity, and the gay liberation movement emerged as an alternative to the homophile movement. Although it is an over-simplification, the Stonewall riots of 1969 are often cited as the beginning of the gay liberation movement. The Stonewall Inn was a New York gay and drag bar, predominately Black and Latino, and it was subject, like many gay bars at the time, to occasional police raids. These raids usually resulted in arrests for such forms of ‘indecency’ as dancing, kissing, and cross-dressing.

Regardless of its origins, the emergence of homosexuality as an identity category resulted in a contrast between heterosexual desire as normal or natural and homosexual desire as abnormal or unnatural. The specification of seemingly different causal factors by McIntosh and Bray, Foucault, and D’Emilio does not render their analyses incompatible. The time frame for the inception of homosexual identity supplied by D’Emilio coincides with the time frame supplied by Foucault, though D’Emilio attributed causality to changing social structures and Foucault attributed it to the emerging medical discourses.

Similarly, the established paradigm of sexuality, which initially provided a tidy distinction between homosexuality as deviant and heterosexuality as normal, has ceased to accommodate the various and often subtle ways in which sexuality deviates from the heterosexual norm. This is especially clear in connection with transgender identity. Consider, for example, the tendency to classify Hall’s The Well of Loneliness as a ‘lesbian novel’, though its protagonist exhibits an identity that could just as readily be characterized as transgender.
