Abstract (English)

"This collection of original writings and artwork challenges commonly held definitions of the body. Filmmakers, poets, visual and performance artists, sex workers, activists, and cultural critics employ outrage and analysis to investigate the body as a source of identity and an object of social control. The contributors offer anguished and exultant visions of gay yearning and despair, male heterosexual hysteria, ethnic defiance, feminist reflection, and emotional recognition. These rigorous and inventive works will entrance and provoke." -- p. [4] of cover.
