This collection of essays focuses on queer, lesbian and gay documentary, arguing that documentary films and videos articulate an essential political and social urgency, acting as testaments to the importance of reclaiming history and reasserting the importance of these points of view. Among the topics discussed are: representations of young queers on such shows as MTV's "The Real World"; pre-Stonewall films; portrayals of lesbians and ageing; video activism in Oregon and the South; and the works of Derek Jarman, Su Friedrich, Cheryl Dunye and Sadie Bennings. A range of films and videos are examined, including "Strangers in Good Company", "Paris is Burning", "Juggling Gender", "Silverlake Life", and "Without You I'm Nothing".
