Leyland Publications publishes books on popular aspects of gay sexuality and culture, for example, the recent collection of gay love letters through the centuries by such luminaries as Michelangelo, St. Anselm, Erasmus, King James I, Alexander Hamilton, Walt Whitman, Tchaikovsky, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, Hart Crane, W.H. Auden, Jean Cocteau, William Burroughs, etc., as well as a series of gay male adult comics (that great American art form), books on film, and gay male erotica (fiction/nonfiction).



Gay History, Sex, Politics, and Culture are the focus of the quality books published by San Francisco's Gay Sunshine. Beginning in 1975, under the direction of Winston Leyland, Gay Sunshine Press has published gay male books as part of the burgeoning Gay Cultural Renaissance, defined as "a rediscovery of the Gay Cultural heritage and its expression, especially since Stonewall, through art, music, literature, film and in many other ways." To date these Gay Sunshine books include work by such famous writers as Gore Vidal, Christopher Isherwood, Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet, Allen Ginsberg, as well as much work by younger American writers, and gay literature in translation from other cultures (Japan, China, Latin America, Russia).

Gay Sunshine Press (founded 1975) is the world's oldest continuing gay
book publisher, proud to serve the LGBTQ community for 34 years.
