Note
London's gay scene is a bewildering spectacle. Both glamorous and sordid, it inspires this bizarre account of queens and queenery. Among the many characters are The Northern Queen, The Opera Queen, The Screaming Queen, The YMCA Queen and The Rent Boy. A combination of drama, diary, documentary and monologue, Queens is the first book to have charted the labyrinths of the metropolitan gay scene. At once acid and sympathetic, it is an anatomy of a subculture and a virtuoso celebration."
