Description - Inside/Out by Diana Fuss

In the space of a decade, lesbians and gays have gone from coming out' to acting up' to outing'. In the process, they have radically redefined the way society views sex, sexuality and gender. But what does it mean to say one is gay? A dyke? A queen? Queer? Are these descriptions of sexual preference' or cries of political protest? The first collection specifically to feature the new theoretical work in lesbian and gay studies, Inside/Out challenges the heterocentric foundations of much recent critical scholarship and current theories of sexual difference. The contributors employ a variety of theoretical approaches (psychoanalysis, deconstruction, semiotics and discourse theories) to investigate representations of sex and sexual difference in literature, film, video, music and photography. Looking at divas, dykes, vampires and queens, these analyses address issues of AIDS, pornography, pedagogy, authorship and activism.
