Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, et al.
That's Revolting! Queer strategies for resisting assimilation (New revised and expanded edition)
Soft Skull Press, 2007
Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore's re-release of That's Revolting! isn't about the why of resisting assimilation - Sycamore and her band of queer activists are more interested in telling you how to fight the assimilationist project.
The articles in this anthology describe community projects and activisms that include the use of pirate radio, resisting police action, running a queer experimental films, and using bathrooms to resist gender fundamentalism and ablism. Here, the term "action" isn't reduced to "writing extensively to convince others," "intersectionality" doesn't mean "that one essay I read about black lesbians back in college," "queer identity politics" hasn't shifted to the commodification of middle- to upper-class gay experiences, and "change" isn't "incrementalism" turned "trickle-down activism."
It's not a what-to-think book. It's a training manual for the would-be and veteran queer activist, chock full of wisdom and lessons-learned about successful and less-than-successful projects.
