"Fresh interpretations and clever illustrations help bring new life to academic constructs and an understanding of the intersection of biology, psychology, and modern culture." -- The Washington Blade"[Queer] succeeds in opening its rarified subject matter to nonacademic audiences and disrupting assumptions and preconceptions about gender and sexuality, not to mention race, class, and the idea of 'normal.'. . . .Former undergrads will wish they had such resources when they were hacking through this difficult material." -- Library Journal "[Queer has] unexpected, extraordinary wit and erudition...the graphic-novel format proves exceptional at exploring identity politics, gender, biology, privilege, exclusion, and sexology through a queer lens...one small step for queer theory." -- Foreword Magazine "Queer is a great primer that will open ideas and start a great search for even more details. Perfect for when you find yourself stuck in conversations outside of your small talk repertoire. This book will make a great addition to your library of queer essentials." -- Lambda Literary ["Queer] is for the funky free thinker." -- OUT Magazine "a self-contained and utterly riveting seminar in gender theory, queer thought and LGBTQ+ action... this should be required reading for every student." -- Largehearted Boy "This invaluable book by Dr. Barker and illustrated by Scheele is a friendly introduction to the vast, deep, chaotic sea of (almost) everything 'Queer'." -- Erika Moen, Oh Joy Sex Toy
