Considered one of the most important gay books of the 20th century, Song of the Loon launched a wave of gay erotic pulp fiction. It made gay literary history with its explicit depiction of gay male sex, positive portrayal of male love and poetic ideal of a gay brotherhood transcending racial and cultural barriers. It was so popular it inspired two sequels, Song of Aaron and Listen, The Loon Sings, a 1970 movie, and a parody: Fruit of the Loon.
