Description

This study of the American rural South addresses the psychological effect of religious fervour, right-wing Republicanism, internalized self-hatred and the intervention of urban gay/feminist politics on gay/feminist life, identities and communities in the Southern States. Militia men, white supremacists and religious leaders offer their opinions on homosexuality, AIDS, feminism and abortion, and gays, lesbians and feminists discuss how their "alternative" lifestyles conflict with or adapt to the tenor of life in the rural South. The book combines controversial interviews with political commentary in its study of attitudes towards gender and sexuality in the Southern States of America.
