In the years since Feminism Is Queer was first published in 2010, feminist and LGBTQ activism has increased and evolved at an incredible rate. With the current third wave of feminism and gay rights issues steadily dominating mainstream media, Mimi Marinucci’s innovative concept of queer feminism that unites natural allies, queer and feminist theory, is more vital than ever before.
 
This updated and expanded edition explores with the relevancy of queer feminism to a new generation of feminist activists and offers a way to both understand gender, sex, and sexuality while fostering solidarity between allies for women’s and LGBTQ rights. Bringing this comprehensive introduction to gender and queer theory up to date are examinations of the latest developments in feminism and queer theory, including new forms of both feminism and antifeminism developing out of online communities, as well as the growing significance of transgender experiences in mainstream media. An essential guide for anyone with an interest in gender or sexuality, this new edition will be indispensable to those wanting to stay current on the vital role that these intersecting disciplines play in contemporary LGBTQ and feminist movements.

Review Quotes
Choice
“An outstanding reference for students and faculty attempting to understand the history and current issues in the LGBTQ+ communities. The author's presentation of social construction and paradigm clearly and logically explains the issues in developing a history of LGBTQ+. Additionally, Marinucci (philosophy and women's and gender studies, Eastern Washington Univ.) does an excellent job of addressing the queer movement as oppositional to what are often the binary definitions involved in LGBT orientations. . . . A great resource for students and faculty alike. Highly recommended.”
