The Ethics of Marginality
Book Description:

An original and timely critique which moves gay studies beyond both identity politics and the “rights” discourse, as it questions whose interests are served in an uncritical celebration of the Other. Champagne analyzes a number of recent films, including Paris is Burning, Urinal, and Marlon Riggs' 1989 video Tongues Untied, along with gay pornography. He uses the work of such critics as Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, and Gayatri Spivak, as he establishes a ground-breaking and controversial new theoretical model for studies of the Other.
