First Person Queer: Who We Are (So Far)
EDITOR: Richard Labonté, Lawrence Schimel
CONTRIBUTORS: Mette Bach, Christopher, DiRaddo, David Hatfield Sparks
PUBLISHER: Arsenal Pulp Press
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 by definition, are 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.”
