9780979389559: On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life

"On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life" Curated by James M. Saslow Published by Leslie- Lohman Gay Art Foundation Inc. "On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life" features some 70 works drawn mostly from the Leslie-Lohman Museum collection and answers the question, "What do gay people do when they're not having sex?" These diverse works demonstrate the uniqueness as well as the universality of everyday queer life. It is an excellent opportunity to see works from the Museum's collection that in some cases have never been exhibited. The theme is timely in a decade that has seen the unprecedented mushrooming of same-sex marriage, child-rearing, and domesticity increase in acceptance both legally and socially. The thrust of queer politics has shifted from asserting our right to be different and erotic toward demanding the right to do what everyone else does. Living queer lives has long been an active battle front in America's ongoing culture wars. Now, the queer fight has shifted from our right to be different toward the right to be "normal" and unremarkable. Queer genre imagery is a weapon in our battle to secure what we might call the radicality of the ordinary.
