Product description

Synopsis

A look at heterosexual institutions from a homosexual perspective. The author raises questions about identity and culture through an examination of, for instance, stag nights, football matches, shopping malls, the Royal Tournament, male comedy duos, EuroDisney, package holidays, bingo and boxing.

From the Publisher

PUBLISHED REVIEWS
An hilariously perverse look at pop culture where nothing is as straight - or gay - as it seems

‘ERUDITE, INCISIVE, SASSY… FRESH, HILARIOUS….’ - Publishers Weekly

'BRILLIANT... SERIOUSLY FUNNY.’ - Scotland On Sunday

'YOU’D HAVE TO BE A CHRONIC DEPRESSIVE NOT TO LAUGH' - New Statesman & Society

'PROVOCATIVE, IRREVERANT... A VALUABLE AND ENTERTAINING READ FOR THOSE OF ANY PERSUASIOIN SEEKING FRESH PERSPECTIVES ON THE ERA IN WHICH WE LIVE' - The Hot Press, Dublin
