5.0 out of 5 stars Memoir of Gender Variance, October 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels (Paperback)
There are not many childhood memoirs of gender variant, i.e. gay, boys. After all, being gay does not start in adolescence. This part of GLBT history has been recently overshadowed by the many autobiographies of transwomen, which are important but tell a different story. The gay community has tended to minimize the wide range of gender variance of gay men in its fetishistic attraction to the macho-man "ideal." Why can't Quentin Crisp be one of our ideals? This brief memoir makes a great, readable addition to the gay male literature. It also deals in a realistic way with the male-on-male sexual exploitation of a young gay man, which is another story that needs to be heard. I praise the author for his courage, and encourage others to read this touching book.
