What is remarkable and new is that there presentation has incredible simple clarity. This clarity goes beyond the actual presentation of thinking and ideas. These authors have actually made the words "Gay" and "Lesbian" words of reasonable behaviour, reasonable lifestyle, and reasonable sexuality.
Through their presentation they have clearly defined and (more importantly) emotionally presented the Gay and Lesbian world as an arena or paradigm of Normalcy, and this is something which has been crying out to be accomplished ever since the late 19th century published brilliance of Edward Carpenter and the incredible energy, courage, and insisting writing of One Magazine in the 1950s and 1960s. It is a tour de Force of Demonstrated Normalcy for an aspect of our civilization which has been called every negative name known to all of us. As such, in its very quite way, it is a very revolutionary book.
