As the gay mainstream ironically prioritizes the attainment of straight privilege over all else, it drains queer identity of any meaning, relevance, or cultural value. That's Revolting shows us what the new queer resistance looks like. Edited by the instigator of San Francisco's Gay Shame and with contributions from the likes of Charlie Anders, Patrick Califia, and Carol Queen, the collection challenges the commercialized, commodified, and hyper-objectified view of gay/queer identity projected by the mainstream media by exploring queer struggles to transform gender, revolutionize sexuality, and build community outside of traditional models. It is both a blueprint and a call to action, bringing the post-identity politics of a new generation of pissed-off queers to a wider audience. Now revised and updated.
