Persistence is a multi-faceted gem - editors Ivan E. Coyote and Zena Sharman further explore many of the themes from Joan Nestle's 1992 reader, The Persistent Desire, by enlisting the incredible voices of many of this era's prominent queer and trans writers and activists. With Nestle's blessing (and a forward, to boot!), this gorgeous hot pink book brings together personal stories of love and rage, academic essays of theory and practice, fierce manifestoes and solemn triumphant memories. Whether one adores or abhors the idea of butch and femme, reclaims or renames these roles or creates something completely new, this generation's Persistence is a thought-provoking reader that examines where our gender identities, orientations and expressions intersect with our experiences of race, class and ability and how we inhabit our gendered lives.
