Counter "Patrick Moore boldly argues that the promiscuous gay men of the 1970s were actually artists and that AIDS derailed an esthetic community and sexual adventure. This quietly personal book reclaims the past for young gay men and makes it useable."
--Edmund White, author of A Boy's Own Story

"A personal, tender, honest book about a past that can never be regained, but must not be forgotten."
--Sarah Schulman, author of After Delores

"Patrick Moore reminds us of the extravagant creativity of gay self-fashioning in the 1970s, in the hope that such historical awareness can help us bring about an extravagant, creative gay future."
--Carolyn Dinshaw, Director of the Center for Gender & Sexuality, New York University

"Moore's exceptional study considers those men who fashioned an underground gay life that still resonates today."
--Felice Picano, author of Like People In History and a founding member of the Violet Quill Club
