 About the Book 

As the growing gay mainstream prioritizes the attainment of straight privilege over all else, it drains queer identity of any meaning, relevance, or cultural value. Whats more, queers remain under attack: Gay youth shelters can be vetoed because they might reduce property values. Trannies are out because they might offend straights. Thats Revolting! offers a bracing tonic to these trends. Edited by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Thats Revolting! collects timely essays such as Dr. Laura, Sit on My Face, Gay Art Guerrillas, and Queer Parents: An Oxymoron Or Just Plain Moronic? by unrepentant activists like Patrick Califia, Kate Bornstein, and Carol Queen. This updated edition contains seven new selections that cover everything from rural, working-class youth in Massachusetts to gay life in New Orleans to the infamous Drop the Debt/Stop AIDS action in New York. This lively composite portrait of cutting-edge queer activism is a clarion call for anyone who questions the value of becoming the Stepford Homosexual.
