An enthusiastic capacity crowd came to the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center in Kingston, NY, last week for "Gay in the Great War," a presentation by author Lance Ringel. Ringel, joined by his spouse, veteran actor-singer Chuck Muckle, read passages from his acclaimed war novel Flower of Iowa and Muckle performed several songs sung by Doughboys on the front lines during World War I.
In a reprise of their Kingston, New York event, Lance and Chuck enchanted a crowd of lesbian and gay history buffs at the Bureau of General Services — Queer Division in New York's Lower East Side this past Friday.
