Evocative of writers Patrick Califia-Rice and Kate Bornstein, whose best works explore gender and sexuality through personal memoir, queer sex life is a frank and intimate collection of responses to theories of queer sexuality and identity as viewed through the author's own experiences. By turns insightful and elegant, Terry Goldie delves into contemporary subject matter both fraught and explicit, revealing subtle, fluid truths about human sexuality and desire; drag queens, feminism, cross-cultural sex, bisexuality, gay youth, and the concept of being ''out,'' among others. Goldie explores this diverse terrain with a perceptive and provocative eye as he attempts to understand the complex issues of sexuality and gender from within - and as a result, to understand himself. The result expands and deepens our understanding of the parameters and ramifications not only of queer sexuality, but human sexuality in general, in terms that are both beautiful and unapologetic. Queer sex life is a book for LGBTQ studies and general readers alike.
