Publisher's Summary

First published in 1999, the groundbreaking Exile and Pride is essential to the history and future of disability politics. Eli Clare's revelatory writing about his experiences as a white disabled genderqueer activist/writer established him as one of the leading writers on the intersections of queerness and disability and permanently changed the landscape of disability politics and queer liberation.
With a poet's devotion to truth and an activist's demand for justice, Clare deftly unspools the multiple histories from which our ever-evolving sense of self unfolds. His essays weave together memoir, history, and political thinking to explore meanings and experiences of home: home as place, community, bodies, identity, and activism. Here listeners will find an intersectional framework for understanding how we actually live with the daily hydraulics of oppression, power, and resistance. At the root of Clare's exploration of environmental destruction and capitalism, sexuality and institutional violence, gender and the body politic, is a call for social justice movements that are truly accessible to everyone.
With heart and hammer, Exile and Pride pries open a window onto a world where our whole selves, in all their complexity, can be realized, loved, and embraced.

Narrator Horror -- book outdated

What disappointed you about Exile and Pride?

Narrator Horror -- book outdated - Just because it is about our OUR community - does not mean it is Worth buying - very outdated. The narrator is too theatre for the purpose of the book - really..!!! do not buy it..

Eli Clare keeps it complicated and real

I loved this book but the overly dramatic narration drove me to distraction and competed with the author's voice for attention.
