In addition to acting as the only public voice for French gays prior to the explosion of radicalism of 1968, ArcadieOCowith its club and reviewOCowas a social and intellectual hub, attracting support from individuals as diverse as Jean Cocteau and Michel Foucault and offering support and solidarity to thousands of isolated individuals. Yet despite its huge importance, Arcadie has largely disappeared from the historical record.aThe main cause of this neglect, Julian Jackson explains in Living in Arcadia, is that during the post-Stonewall era of queer activism, BaudryOCOs organization fell into disfavor, dismissed as conservative, conformist, and closeted.

Through extensive archival research and numerous interviews with the reclusive Baudry, Jackson challenges this reductive view, uncovering ArcadieOCOs pioneering efforts to educate the European public about homosexuality in an era of renewed repression. In the course of relating this absorbing history, Jackson offers a startlingly original account of the history of homosexuality in modern France.
