Berlin is once more capital of queer arts and tourism. Queerness is more visible today than it has been for decades, but at what cost?

Intended as a fistful of rocks to throw at the glass house of Gaylandia, the book challenges the commercialised, commodified, and hyperobjectified view of gay/queer identity projected by the mainstream (straight and gay) media by exploring queer struggles to transform gender, revolutionise sexuality, and build community/family outside of traditional models.
