Omtale: Fags, Hags and Queer Sisters
This is an account of the importance of women and cross-gender identification in gay male culture. It offers a range of cultural readings from Tennessee William's classic "A Streetcar Named Desire" and Forster's "gay" novel "Maurice" through "Fiction", queer lifestyle magazines, "Roseanne", slash fan fiction and Jarman's "Edward II" to Almodovar's camp classic "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown". It takes issue with many of the sacred cows of gay politics, and offers a number of new concepts in lesbian and gay theory.
