In "Another Place to Breathe," political activist Amber Hollibaugh talks about being a femme woman who looks like a drag queen, trying to be respectful of "real" drag queens on Fire Island. In "In Goldilocks's Footsteps," Elizabeth A. Kelly and Kate Kane discuss their feminist reactions to "Bear Magazine" and its portrayal of happily bulky, hairy men as an alternative to the stereotyped smooth, sculpted gay male gym body. Lawrence Schimel, in "The Butch/Femme Dance," talks about self-identification as a "femme" man attracted to "butch" women. In an age where identities based on gender and sexual orientation are always changing, Opposite Sex is smart, informed, imaginative, and always provocative. --Michael Bronski --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
"Examines the history of this seaside resort city to explore the larger dynamics of Progressivism, urban politics, commercial leisure, and sabbatarianism. . . . A solid local history and more. Its integration of local and national issues raises questions that reverberate far beyond Atlantic City."-"Journal of American History",
