a much needed fabulous intervention,
This review is from: Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?: Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification, and the Desire to Conform (Paperback)
I was at the book launch for this exciting, sassy, smart, new anthology edited by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore. The essays complied here are a much needed antidote to the mainstream agenda of marriage, military, religion and adoption. The question, 'why are faggots so afraid of faggots?" is so spot on and answered through a vast array of compelling stories and essays. This lens also allows for the broader question of "why is the current LGBT movement so afraid of radical queers?" to be considered. The book is both both specific and open, an impressive feat. Throw on your best boa, put on those glittery false eyelashes and read this book!
