À propos des auteurs
Meilleurs commentaires provenant d’autres pays
The book contains historical analysis, biographies, qualitative data and manifestos for future actions that are required for equality to be realised.
In particular, the book demonstrates how homophobia, transphobia and misogyny are endemic throughout the world, and indeed even within so called "liberal democracies". The real lived experiences of queer people making their way through the world is at times tragic but is also moving, uplifting and extremely thought provoking.
The most enjoyable aspect to this book are the varieties of style and the diverse content matter that is contained in the 35 essays in the book; this ensures that the reader is kept "hooked" and is always looking forward to seeing what the next author has to say.
The key message of the book is how we need to be involved within our queer communities, supporting each other and continually challenging our oppression with political action. This is a time that there are dangerous forces trying to diminish our visibility and roll back the clock on our achievements and progress over the last 50 years. There is no time to lose and we must continue to challenge our enemies and fight for queer equality in all aspects of our lives.
