By Jennifer Pelland on April 30, 1999
Format: Paperback
Body image has always been a hot topic in the queer community, but has never been expressed so eloquently as in this book. Looking Queer is packed with first person accounts of all sorts of body image issues: from lesbians with eating disorders who are shunned from the lesbian community for being so body-oriented, to disabled gay men who can't find a place in the image-conscious gay dating scene, to transsexuals recounting the journey they've been through to get to where they are now, to intergendered people who proudly refer to themselves as "mythical creatures." Every single story in this anthology touched me deeply. In this increasingly lookist world, this book is a must-read of the first degree.

This book looked like someone had left it out in the rain, it had mold in it. I was sooo very disapointed.
