Synopses & Reviews
Policing Public Sex probes the new crisis points that have emerged in gay/lesbian/queer politics and AIDS activism in the second decade of the epidemic. Contributors include well-known activists and writers such as: Priscilla Alexander, Allan Berube, Lisa Duggan, Amber Hollibaugh, Carol Leigh (a.k.a. Scarlot Harlot), Jose Munoz, Walt Odets, Scott O'Hara, Andrew Ross, Kendall Thomas, and more.
As some activists have turned to regulation rather than education in the effort to curb the AIDS epidemic, the public culture at the foundation of queer culture has come under attack.
