An absolutely fantastic set of essays with a little bit of everything. Other reviewers have said what I would say better, so I'll leave it at that. ( )

And this was how I discovered there were queers even farther to the left than I am. (I didn't realize that was possible.) A collection of essays by radical queers, some talking about their personal experiences living far outside of the mainstream, others talking about activism. (My favorite essay was the one detailing attempts to make bathrooms more disabled- and trans-friendly.) Aimed towards an activist (current or potential) rather than an academic audience, the essays are readable, sassy and generally fun, though at times the constantly brassy, "hell yeah!" tone wore thin for me and I hungered for a little ambivalence and introspection. If you're not on the same page, politically, as the contributors, you might find some of these essays challenging and even obnoxious -- I personally have a love/hate with the whole Gay Shame ethos (google it) -- but you definitely won't be bored.

I skimmed a couple of essays and what I found was anti-assimilation manifestos. I think I was looking for a more cohesive view of what a queer society would look like. Maybe it's further on in the book. Maybe it's an amalgamation of all the essays. I'm kind of tired of being the opposition party. I think I'm looking for a vision that arrives somewhere and isn't just continual revolution. ( )
