The Attack Queers: Liberal Media and the Gay Right

Richard Goldstein, Author Verso $22 (108p) ISBN 978-1-85984-678-0
""The gay right is on the march,"" warns Village Voice executive editor Richard Goldstein (Reporting the Counterculture) in his slim new primer on the rise of conservatism among gays and lesbians. The Attack Queers: Liberal Society and the Gay Right looks at the work and the public personas of prominent ""homocons"" like Andrew Sullivan, Camille Paglia and Norah Vincent, and at the political implications of gay conservatism and Republican alliances for the gay and lesbian population at large. For Goldstein, the rise of the gay right points to some weaknesses in liberal gay activism, and he exhorts bourgeois ""strivers"" not to abandon their more radical counterparts. (June)
