Resist!: Essays Against a Homophobic Culture
Mona Oikawa, Dionne Falconer, Ann Decter
Women's Press, 1994 - Literary Collections - 242 pages
Twenty-three writers thoughtfully explore everyday resistance in a homophobic culture. These essays revel in the power of simple public displays of lesbian affection; they develop theories of sexuality and of intimacy, while challenging racist sexual representation and colonization. They trace our families or origins and the ones we are creating with lovers, children, and friends. They detail working lives, struggles with institutions, and strategies for coping and for change. In Resist! Essays Against a Homophobic Culture, Canadian and American writers name the pain, the pleasure and the strength of our resistance.
