Book description
"THE GAY REVOLUTION HAS FAILED." With those five words, after the ball has probably sparked more intense debate than any other book in the history of American gay politics. Hailed by moderates and denounced by radicals, it has become the guiding manifesto for a new brand of pragmatic gay activism across the nation. In a stunningly systematic argument, Kirk and Madsen trace the deep psychological roots of anti-gay bigotry, and show why the gay movement's most cherished tactics of the past have accomplished little. They then outline a boldly original battle plan for conquering bigotry by exploiting the mass media. The book concludes with an incendiary but constructive critique of gay life itself.
