Gay liberation's activist past and pragmatic present are merely prologue to a queer cultural future, Muñoz suggests in this critical condemnation of the political status quo. Casting his vision of a radical gay aesthetic through the prisms of literature, photography and performance, the author dismisses commonplace concerns like same-sex marriage as desires for mere inclusion in a corrupt mainstream. More defiantly, he exalts the persistence of commercial sex spaces in the face of 'antisex and homphobic policings, ' and celebrates the overlay of punk and queer in performance spaces.-- "Publishers Weekly"


Brilliant, extraordinary, and necessary, Muñoz's critical refusal of queer pragmatism, his commitment to the utopian force of the radical attempt--the radical aesthetic, erotic, and philosophical experiment--is indispensable in an historical moment characterized by political surrender and intellectual timidity passing itself off as boldness.--Fred Moten, author of In the Break
