In this amazing, wide-ranging anthology of nonfiction essays, contributors write intimate and honest first-person accounts of queer experience, from coming out to "passing" as straight to growing old to living proud. These are the stories of contemporary gay and lesbian life-and are by definition funny, sad, hopeful, and truthful. Representing a diversity of genders, ages, races, and orientations, and edited by two acclaimed writers and anthologists (who between them have written or edited almost one hundred books), First Person Queer puts the "personal" back into "queer." Contributors include Kate Bornstein, Sharon Bridgforth, Katherine V. Forrest, Tim Miller, Achy Obejas, and Simon Sheppard.
