The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions

Mitchell, Larry


Staff Pick, LGBTQ+ (by Niamh)

Part theatre piece, part fairy tale, part manifesto, Larry Mitchell draws on his experience of queer community living together outside New York in the 1970s. This queer utopian piece places particular emphasis on topics of sexual liberation and anti-assimilationism, and celebrates queer life and love. Not only is this an important, historical, political outcry, it is also endlessly fun, with brilliant illustrations from Nick Astra and joyful, playful prose.

The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions is a beloved queer utopian text written by Larry Mitchell with lush illustrations by Ned Asta, published by Calamus Press in 1977. Part-fable, part-manifesto, the book takes place in Ramrod, an empire in decline, and introduces us to the communities of the faggots, the women, the queens, the queer men, and the women who love women who are surviving the ways and world of men. Cherished by many over the four decades since its publication, The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions offers a trenchant critique of capitalism, assimilation, and patriarchy that is deeply relevant today. This new edition will feature essays from performance artist Morgan Bassichis, who adapted the book to music with TM Davy in 2017 for a performance at the New Museum, and activist filmmaker Tourmaline.
