Generation Q: Gays, Lesbians and Bisexuals Born Around 1969's Stonewall Riots Tell Their Stories of Growing up in the Age of Information

Overview

Generation Q - young gays, lesbians, and bisexuals born around 1969's Stonewall riots - is a culture made up of vibrant, diverse people who live in the fragmented end of the twentieth century, surrounded by a glut of information, instant gratification, and at once terrifying and fantastic possibilities for the future.

Overview

Generation Q - young gays, lesbians, and bisexuals born around 1969's Stonewall riots - is a culture made up of vibrant, diverse people who live in the fragmented end of the twentieth century, surrounded by a glut of information, instant gratification, and at once terrifying and fantastic possibilities for the future. In the words of one contributor, they have inherited "a virus, wrecked communities, memorials, the NAMES quilt, clinical trials, and the AIDS industry as a viable and 'noble' career choice." Yet these young men and women also possess joy, visibility, power, astonishingly strong support networks, and previously unimaginable freedoms. They exist within contradictions, and this amazing collection of true stories captures their unique experiences.

Editorial Reviews

John Erich
In Generation Q, the Q stands simply for "queer," not "queer and militant," "queer and just-wanting-to-be-like-everybody -else." You want unity? They're all gay - there's your unity. Editors Robin Bernstein and Seth Clark Silberman celebrate our diversity from the outset...

What you get in Generation Q is a wide-ranging array of styles, tones, and tales to tell. Joyous, angry, tragic, bewildered: These stories run the gamut. they provide a mixed bag of gold and dross, some delectable, some detestable. Some you'll love, some you won't. But at least they're different. Reach in, and there's no telling what you&339;ll draw out.
