Auteur: Queen, Carl & Schimel, Lawrence (ed.)
Titel: PoMoSexuals
Sub titel: Challenging Assumptions about Gender and Sexuality - Preface by Kate Bornstein

PoMo: short for PostModern: in the arts, a movement following after and in direct reaction to Modernism; culturally, an outlook that acknowledges diverse and complex points of view. PoMoSexual: the queer erotic reality beyond the boundaries of gender, separatism, and essentialist notions of sexual orientation. 'How about you? Ever wonder if youíre the only one who doesnít quite fit in one of the sanctioned queer worlds? Like, are you really a lesbian? Are you really a gay man? Maybe you fall outside the Ďpermittedí labels, and maybe youíre the only one who knows you do, and so you feel a bit guilty? Well, Iíve got news for you. Youíre not guilty, youíre simply postmodern. Isnít that neat? If you donít believe me, all you need to do is pick up this book and start reading anywhere. Really. I keep a copy in my bathroom because thatís where I do a lot of my wondering. From revelation to analysis, from XX to XY and back again, PoMoSexuals is the literary amusement park weíve all been hoping exists someplace. Carol Queen and Lawrence Schimel have found Oz' - Kate Bornstein
