"Then the process of reification began. The essence of gay liberation, which is love, became a thing, a marketable commodity you could wear around your neck or paste on your bumper...."

--Jason Victor Serinus

The quote above gives a fair indication of where this very cool anthology is coming from, as people remember back to the days of the Gay liberation Front and various other groups and activities--mainly from 1968-1972. The intent isn't only to mark an exciting period in history or just remember the crazy good times of youth, but to remind people of today who believe in assimilation rather than liberation that there is more to life--and being queer--then rainbow flags and gays in the military.

Recommended.
