Sample text

In Europe, these accoutrements of male gayness are second-hand, from ‘American’ gay culture. Drinking beer out of a can or a bottle is another recent instance. When the BBC got round to financing a gay film, in 1992, it was The Lost Language of Cranes, transposed by director Nigel Finch into a London context. Metropolitan/nonmetropolitan, I have said, is a relation, and north-western Europe, even, is relatively marginal. Conversely, part of Philip’s discovery of a proper gayness is the repudiation of English and European influences manifested by Derek and Geoffrey.

If metropolitan lesbians and gay men had in fact succeeded in wiping out power in relationships, all we would have to do is enjoy our egalitarian practice and let everyone else in on the secret. But that is far from the case. The prevailing sex— gender system, we have every reason to know, is geared to the production of hierarchy and, as part of that, to the production of anxious, unhappy and violent people. It produces us and our psychic lives—straights and gays—and it is not going to leave us alone.
