    1. For the most part, this book has an excellent collection of lectures given at CUNY The lecturers examine a multitude of subjects that affect gays and lesbians However, there are some extremely weak lectures in here For example, the first one is pointless and seems to have no discernible point I almost gave up on reading the book in the first place It would ve helped if several pieces had been culled.

    2. I have a profound admiration for the struggles, observations and realities of my gay and lesbian brothers and sisters I honor their fight for equal rights and as a progressive I think it is essential to understand their fight, which is the most profound current civil rights struggle in America This book is an excellent reader for anyone seeking to understand about the complexities and identity of gay and lesbian experience in the current era.

    3. there are some really solid pieces in here the only problem is some issues DADT, the LeVey hypothesis, Bowers vs Hardwick are either no longer issues or the issues are completely reframed the history section s alone are worth picking up a copy for from a historians viewpoint the book is interesting although Queer in this case is just a standin for gay lesbian with a somewhat limited scope
