More About How Queer! by Faith Beauchemin
 
 
 
Overview
How Queer collects fourteen short autobiographical essays--not written by sociologists or professional activists, but by ordinary bisexual, pansexual, and sexually-fluid people from diverse backgrounds, sharing their experiences and telling their own stories. These personal narratives explore themes of bisexual and pansexual visibility, activism, confrontations with homophobia, and non-monosexual experience in the LGBT community. Alongside these stories, Faith Beauchemin offers commentary in the form of an introduction and five reflective essays that place these writers' experiences in the context of broader movements for radical social change. She argues that the common trend toward bisexual erasure in LGBT activism functions only to serve the interest of patriarchy, sexism, and homophobia. In contrast, the stories collected in this book help to subvert oppressive hierarchies by highlighting the perspectives of people who refuse to fit neatly into categories like "gay" or "straight."
