Donna Minkowitz is the author of GROWING UP GOLEM (just released) and FEROCIOUS ROMANCE.
A writer on queer politics and culture for the Village Voice in the late 80s and early 90s, she has also written for Salon.com, the New York Times Book Review, The Nation, Ms., and elsewhere.
Her memoir Ferocious Romance won a Lambda Literary Award. In the book, she went undercover with several anti-gay Christian Right groups and wrote about the surprising things she, a progressive lesbian journalist, had in common with them.
Her essay on orgasm appears in Rebecca Walker's anthology To Be Real: Telling the Truth and Changing the Face of Feminism, and she once disguised herself as a 16-year-old evangelical boy to write about the Promise Keepers for Ms.
