MEDIA REVIEWS
"Draws attention to the intersections of privilege and opportunity in Gay life, themes which are usually overlooked....Speaks directly to interests in sexuality, race and class position which are now popular in Lesbian and Gay male studies courses."
-"The Washington Blade
"An impressive collection of essays....All of the essays are, in fact, fantastically provocative and they provide an insightful corrective to the excessive textualization of some postmodern analytics."
-"NWSA Journal
"Examining societies rather than literature, this crosscultural anthology is remarkably strong on class and historical analysis...."The Gender/Sexuality Reader is the definitive counterblow to claims that gender theory is important only to queers, feminists, and shrinks."
-Lesbian Review of Books, Winter 1997
