Essential reading for anyone trying to understand what it means to be gay, bisexual, transgender or straight. --Urvashi Vaid, author of Virtual Equality "Editor Will Roscoe has assembled a crackling collection of provocative, inspiring essays written by Hay during the course of his long struggle for freedom and liberation. . . . By documenting the past, as Hay and Roscoe have done here, we can perhaps find some of the answers that we mistakenly believe have eluded us." --William J. Mann, Lambda Book Report "A fine new edition of Harry Hay's writings. . . . Roscoe's work [is] a model of clear and grounded academic writing." --Al Cotton, The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review "Harry Hay is a remarkable individual. . . . [Radically Gay] provides wonderful glimpses into Hay's own evolution from Marxist pedant to shamanic faerie elder." --Jack Fertig, San Francisco Bay Times "Offers invaluable insight into the vision of one man who made it possible for millions to live in freedom and with self-respect." --New York Native
