Juliana is a series of novels about LGBT history beginning in 1941 in New York City. Each volume continues the story of these same characters as they live through the decades of LGBT history.

Juliana (Vol 1: 1941-1944)

Book I:
It's 1941 and ALICE HUFFMAN, "Al," comes from the potato fields of Long Island with her childhood friends to make it on the Broadway stage, only to find she has no talent. On the kids' first day in New York City, they meet MAXWELL P. HARTWELL III, a failed nightclub owner and former Broadway producer, who, according to Al, looks a little like Clark Gable. He invites them to a nightclub where Al hears JULIANA, the glamorous, perpetually-on-the-brink-of stardom singer, for the first time. Al is immediately drawn to her. Max arranges for the two women to meet. Juliana and Max introduce Al into a world she never knew existed, one in which men wear frilly bathrobes and grass skirts and women wear suits and ties.

Book II:
The Japanese have bombed Pearl Harbor and Al and her childhood friends must cope with the war. Al volunteers at the Stage Door Canteen and tries to forget about Juliana. She wants a "normal" life with none of those "perverts." Cameo appearances are made by Liberace, Tallulah Bankhead, Lauren Bacall, Angela Lansbury, Ethel Merman and others.
