"To link socialism and lesbianism is to link the unpopular with the taboo"

Though the interpretations of the interplay between sexism and capitalism, between the personal and the political, vary across this spectacularly wide ranging collection, each essay shares two fundamental premises. First, that the oppression of gays and lesbians is not an isolated case, and therefore their struggle is necessarily part of a larger movement for social liberation. And second, that the experience of gays and lesbians uphold the basic tenants of a foundational marxism, and that they are uniquely placed to contribute to a revitalization of marxist theory.

Reviews:

“After Stonewall, the queer left set out to create a culture that was both subversive and potentially revolutionary. Pink Triangles is a contribution to the rethinking and revitalization of socialist theory, unifying radical politics and subversive sexuality.”
—Jeffrey Escoffier, author of American Homo: Perversity and Community

About the Editor:

Pam Mitchell is a lesbian activist and the author and editor of a number of books, including Pink Triangles.
