In essays on money (and the lack of it), relationships, family, and home, the contributors address complicated and conflicting emotions surrounding privilege and poverty, pride and shame, community and alienation.
They discuss the painful yet vital aspects of coming out and becoming politicized, of passing and "arriving," of acquiring material possessions and sharing strength. At the same time, they reveal the richness and joy that sustains them through the craft of writing and the pursuit of pleasure.
Together, they redefine what class and queerness mean in our society.
