Advocate: Milwaukee is the most underappreciated gay Mecca in the U.S.

This morning, respected national gay magazine The Advocate posted a glowing blurb and slideshow of images from "Images of America: LGBT Milwaukee," by OnMilwaukee contributor Michail Takach.

That's cool, of course, because Takach's book is a comprehensive illustrated look the city's LGBT history. The headline is bound to really garner some attention.

"What's the most underappreciated gay Mecca in the U.S.?" the headline queried, then answering its own question with the post, which called Takach's book, "beautifully researched and (with) very moving text.

"This book, consisting mostly of photos and detailed captions, takes us from the bad old days of the deep closet to drag queens most glorious, to mega-discos, and beyond."

Congratulations, Michail.

Stay tuned for an interview with Takach about the book around the time it hits shops on Monday, Aug. 22.

The author is donating all proceeds to Milwaukee Pride, Inc. to support the Wisconsin LGBT History Project and education programs.
