"These essays--alternately moving and sprightly, contemplative and outraged--display the power of presenting an alternative to the mainstream: a world of greater tolerance, acceptance, support, and creativity." -- Publishers Weekly
From the Inside Flap
This book plumbs the most important question facing queers in the 21st century: how the hell did we go from forming a crucial part of the '60s 'lib' rainbow, and from mastering, refining, and successfully deploying nonviolent resistance with ACT UP, only to end up creating for ourselves a world of martial and marital law every bit as sterile, constricting, and amoral as the world we once fled like the plague?
--Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men
