It's a Queer World Summary

It's a Queer World by Professor Mark Simpson, QC

Suddenly gay-ness is flooding the cultural mainstream: advertisers flirt with gender-bending imagery, and popular television is alive to the sounds of Dale Winton, Lily Savage and Michael Barrymore. Quentin Tarantino describes TOP GUN as 'the ultimate gay movie', and boy pop groups navigate the sexual divide with a wink to both sides. What is straight and what is bent now? IT'S A QUEER WORLD looks at the institutions of heterosexual life from a queer perspective and brilliantly undermines our sense of what is 'normal'.
