"These essays--alternately moving and sprightly, contemplative and outraged--display the power of presenting an alternative to the mainstream: a world of greater tolerance, acceptance, support, and creativity." -- Publishers Weekly
From the Inside Flap
This book plumbs the most important question facing queers in the 21st century: how the hell did we go from forming a crucial part of the '60s 'lib' rainbow, and from mastering, refining, and successfully deploying nonviolent resistance with ACT UP, only to end up creating for ourselves a world of martial and marital law every bit as sterile, constricting, and amoral as the world we once fled like the plague?
--Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men

This is actually a collection of 31 essays (3-8 pages each). Some were great, but most were boring, lacked a point, and were slow reads. I felt like my brain was being dragged through mud. I struggled to finish it. I didn't feel any inspiration. I was disappointed that it wasn't as radical as I hoped. It feels like some of the essays are written by the same person. I understand it gets edited by the same individual but that shouldn't take away from the authors stories. I would not promote this book. There are better reads out there.
