"The LGBT movement has been coopted by the very institutions it once sought to transform. Heterosexuality, the nuclear family, the monogamous couple-form are our new normal. In place of activism and mobilization, with a handful of notable exceptions, LGBT organizations have become a passive society of spectators, following the lead of donors and pollsters rather than advocating on behalf of sectors of the community that are less economically powerful and less politically popular."
-- Urvashi Vaid in her new book, "Irresistible Revolution: Confronting Race, Class, and the Assumptions of LGBT Politics." The tome is getting rave reviews from readers like Gay City News writer Doug Ireland.
