Dissects the network of household, kinship and sexual relations that constitute the family form in advanced capitalist societies to show how they reinforce conditions of inequality.
Examines an array of issues, including sex as a subversive activity, the “liberated orgasm,” sex advice literature, gender uncertainties, queer politics, anti-pornography campaigns and the rise of the moral right.
Starting from the premise that live performance is experienced in a material, local context, the chapters analyse the intricate and complex workings of queer dramaturgy within specific venues, cities, nations or transnationally.
This publicationis a polemic, provocative account of disappearance, forgetfulness and untimely death.
