I was no stranger to a lot of these experiences although some of the words were new to me (thinking metamour and Lesbian Sheep Syndrome amongst others) and I can’t praise this book highly enough. Kate Harrad and her team of authors and bisexual activists have done a superb job in flagging up issues of invisibility, erasure, ignorance and outright hostility from both straight and homosexual (particularly lesbian) communities. One particularly moving section was the contribution from Omar J. Sakr. It was beautifully written and spoke directly to me. Thank you Omar.
I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, for which I am grateful. I only wish it had been written back in the 1970s.
