The Queer Question: Essays on Desire and Democracy

By Scott Tucker | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

A book is a journey, and this one took over 15 years, with many detours in difficult territory, including crises in public life and in personal health. I am grateful to many guides and travel companions, to many readers, writers, and friends who shared both pleasures and burdens.

Larry Gross, my lover and best friend for over 20 years, remains my greatest source of hope and strength; both my literary and political work owe much to his practical and critical skills. Writers are often solitary workers, so we have been lucky to share solidarity in the same household. If sufficient distance is required to write a good round of love letters, then we have rarely been apart for long. In lieu of a love letter, this book is a belated 22nd anniversary gift.

At a time when " family values" have become another weapon in the crusade against equality of kinship, we have been blessed with kindred of all kinds. Susan Windle and Wendy Galson and their sons, Gabriel and Gregory, have opened their lives and home to both of us, and we thank them with great affection. Many conversations over many years, both intimate and political, resounded in memory while I wrote these pages. I am grateful for the work and friendship of more people than I can name; these are a few: Juan David Acosta, Rita Addessa, Dennis Altman, Dorothy Allison, Allan Bérubé, Pat Califia, Rand Castile, Margaret Cerullo, George Custen, Susie Day, Bill Dobbs, George Dolph, Richard Dyer, Linda Friedrich, Eric Gordon, Ty Geltmaker, JonPaul Hammond, Ulrike Heider, Lisa Henderson, Amber Hollibaugh, Philip Kautz, Barbara Kerr, Kiyoshi Kuromiya, David Lebe, Carolyn Marvin, Jeff Mascovsky,
