This book compiles two decades of new and previously published writing on gay culture by one of the field's most provocative and outspoken critics. Diverging from the text-based premise of most queer theory, Meyer utilizes performance studies and interpretive anthropology to examine camp and drag performances in the spaces in which they appear. He explores a variety of topics - from transsexual striptease and Harlem drag balls to the death of camp - within the genre of queer drag and sexuality performance. This collection of essays, with Meyer's rejection of gender parity and his celebration of the effeminate gay male body, presents a fresh interpretation of established art forms. From the pre-Stonewall era to the present day, Meyer's cultural critique redefines how we understand the phenomena of camp and drag.
