Article title[edit]

I agree that "gay pulp fiction" is a better title--I nearly changed this just to "gay pulp" or "gay pulps," which seems to be the term most often used by the scholars. I had "gay male pulp fiction" intending a clear counterpart to "lesbian pulp fiction," which already exists as an article. While "gay" is often used to refer to gay men, as opposed to lesbians, gay is also used to refer to anyone of either gender who is homosexual--so I inserted the word male to make it immediately clear that this was fiction about gay men, not lesbians. But I agree with the change to "gay pulp fiction" if no one else thinks this is a significant point.Stanford Brown 21:41, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Apropos of nothing, I came across this article while scouting for potential articles to submit for featuring in the Did you know section of the Main Page. It definitely makes the cut in terms of quality, but I've been struggling to come up with a pithy nomination for it. As the author, do you happen to have any ideas?

Revisions, Class & Importance[edit]

I have just made a myraid of corrections, updates, etc. - mostly related to copyediting. I have assigned this article a class rating of C, which did not exist at the time of the last rating when this article was certainly better than start class, but probably short of the B it was assigned. I also assigned this article a low importance for the literature project because as much as I find the topic interesting, I think gay pulps are probably of low importance with respect to all of literature. Feedback and comments are welcome.Npd2983 (talk) 02:04, 30 January 2010 (UTC)


"San Francisco area LGBT historians" - does this refer to historians studying LGBT history in San Francisco or LGBT historians based in the San Francisco area? (talk) 07:22, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Additionally, could one refer to gay male pulp fiction as being a purely American phenomenon? (talk) 07:34, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Gay male pulp fictionGay pulp fiction – While "gay" is still used as a catch-all in some contexts, the status quo here is awkward. Whenever I see a dab with only two entries, I like to see if there's a way we can avoid that, to the benefit of readers. By moving this article to this previous title and retaining the hatnote to Lesbian pulp fiction, we save readers searching for this article a click without making it any more difficult to find the lesbian article. --Relisted.
