Industry Reviews

"Positioning himself firmly on the radical side, D'Emilio advocates nothing less than a total reevaluation of our society's sexual paradigm. Although a single voice is heard in these essays, D'Emilio's call for gays and lesbians to move beyond minority status to one of freedom and choice, to embark on new journeys of sexual definition, ' may well be the rallying cry for renewed activism in the struggle for social justice." -"Library Journal
