As a gay elite prioritizes the attainment of straight privilege over all else, it drains queer identity of any meaning, relevance, or cultural value. That's Revoluting! skewers assimilationist trends with incisive essays like "Dr. Laura, Sit on My Face," "Is Gay Marriage Racist?" and "Queer Parents: An Oxymoron Or Just Plain Moronic?" This expanded edition contains the original work by dozens of visionaries, including Patrick Califia, Dean Spade, and Carol Queen, as well as five new selections that cover everything from rabble-rousing with the Gay Liberation Front in the 1960s to blowing up buildings with the George Jackson Brigade in the 1970s, current-day rural queer youth organizing in Massachusetts to the infamous Drop the Debt / Stop AIDS action in New York. This is a clarion call for anyone who questions the value of becoming the Stepford Homosexual. Book jacket.
