A Political, Feminist Gender-Warrior's Classic

Pat (now Patrick) Califia, in one short book, laid out everything, a virtual oracle, that changed our sexual landscape of the past twenty years.

Pat is peerless in terms of articulation, intelligence, and prescience. This writer is a genius, and wish I could pry her from relative quiet of the past few years. Sexual transformation in public life may be a heady and heavy subject, but you're listening to an ace writer and ripping theorist— never a snooze or a throwaway moment.

A review of sexual politics in San Francisco

This is a history of gay and sexual lifestyle politics in San Francisco in the 80's and 90's. It is of limited historical interest and at this point pretty dated.
