A Queer Film Classic on two groundbreaking gay arthouse porn films from 1972, both examples of the growing liberalization of social attitudes toward sex and homosexuality in post-Stonewall America. Where Fred Halsted's Boys in the Sand is a frothy romp at a gay beach resort community, Wakefield Poole's L.A. Plays Itself is a dark treatise on violence and urban squalor. Both films represent particular, polarizing moments in the early history of the gay movement. Cindy Patton is a longtime activist and scholar. She is currently professor of sociology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.

Montreal Main, one of three QUEER FILM CLASSICS this fall, considers the brilliant yet neglected 1974 Canadian film set in Montreal's bohemian neighborhood ''the Main' and hailed at its premiere at the Whitney Museum of American Art. The movie, directed and starring Frank Vitale, is both a great indie film and a great queer film; a fascinating cinema vrit take on North American social mores and relationships in the 1970s, about a twenty something photographer living among the outcasts, junkies, and artists populating the Main, and his growing obsession with Johnny, the young son of acquaintances, a relationship that is doomed from the start. Disarming in its matter-of-fact treatment of potentially sensational themes, Montreal Main is a quiet yet powerful look at human relations among the post-flower power generation. The book, a collaboration between Thomas Waugh and Jason Garrison, details the nuanced history of this peculiar film, which was released on DVD for the first time in 2009. It also considers the politics and aesthetics of the trope of intergenerational love that director Vitale and collaborators Allan Moyle and Stephen Lack so brazenly probed, in a way that would make the film virtually impossible to produce in present day.

B. Ruby Rich designated a brand new genre, the New Queer Cinema (NQC), in her groundbreaking article in the Village Voice in 1992. This movement in film and video was intensely political and aesthetically innovative, made possible by the debut of the camcorder, and driven initially by outrage over the unchecked spread of AIDS. The genre has grown to include an entire generation of queer artists, filmmakers, and activists. As a critic, curator, journalist, and scholar, Rich has been inextricably linked to the New Queer Cinema from its inception. This volume presents her new thoughts on the topic, as well as bringing together the best of her writing on the NQC. She follows this cinematic movement from its origins in the mid-1980s all the way to the present in essays and articles directed at a range of audiences, from readers of academic journals to popular glossies and weekly newspapers. She presents her insights into such NQC pioneers as Derek Jarman and Isaac Julien and investigates such celebrated films as Go Fish, Brokeback Mountain, Itty Bitty Titty Committee, and Milk. In addition to exploring less-known films and international cinemas (including Latin American and French films and videos), she documents the more recent incarnations of the NQC on screen, on the web, and in art galleries.

Chad Harbach hat den Traum von der »Great American Novel« wahr gemacht: ›Die Kunst des Feldspiels‹ ist ein literarisches Wunder, ein magisches Debüt, ein so kluger wie zu Herzen gehender Roman über den Abschied von der Jugend, über Leidenschaft und Liebe, Freundschaft und Familie. Der Gott des Spiels hat Henry Skrimshander ein Geschenk in die Wiege gelegt: Der schmächtige, unscheinbare Junge aus der Provinz ist das größte Baseball-Talent seit Jahrzehnten. Als er in die Mannschaft des Westish College aufgenommen wird, scheint sein Aufstieg in den Olymp vorprogrammiert. Monatelang macht er nicht einen Fehler. Doch dann geht ein Routinewurf auf fatale Weise daneben ... und die Schicksale von fünf Menschen werden untrennbar miteinander verknüpft. Henry hat einen neuen Gegner: den Selbstzweifel. Sein Mentor Mike Schwartz macht die bittere Erfahrung, dass er Henry zuliebe sich selbst vergessen hat. Henrys schwuler Mitbewohner Owen muss sich von einem herben Schlag erholen. Rektor Affenlight lernt spät im Leben die wahre Liebe kennen und schlittert in eine gefährliche Affäre. Und seine Tochter Pella flieht vor ihrem Mann nach Westish – um auf dem Campus mehr als nur Sex zu finden. Während das dramatische Endspiel unerbittlich näher rückt, sind sie alle gezwungen, sich mit ihren tiefsten Wünschen und Abgründen auseinanderzusetzen. Am Ende wird einer von ihnen gleich zweimal bestattet, und die Leben der anderen werden nie mehr dieselben sein. ›Die Kunst des Feldspiels‹ erzählt von den Dingen, die uns ausmachen – den Fehlern wie den Obsessionen. Wer wissen will, was es bedeutet, hier und heute ein Mensch zu sein, der muss dieses Buch lesen. »Debütromane von solcher Vollkommenheit und Sogkraft sind sehr, sehr selten.« Jonathan Franzen »Wunderbar zu lesen, das reinste Vergnügen.« John Irving

Ein amerikanischer Expat betritt die öffentlichen Toiletten des Kulturpalasts von Sofia, Bulgarien. Dort unten, wo niemand einfach so hingeht, trifft er Mitko, der Charisma ausstrahlt und Gefahr. Der Amerikaner bezahlt Mitko für Sex und trifft ihn danach immer wieder, gefangen in seinem Begehren und in einer Beziehung, in der Zärtlichkeit umzuschlagen droht in Gewalt. Und während er sich seiner komplizierten Vergangenheit stellen muss, kann er weder seinem Verlangen entkommen noch den Privilegien als Ausländer, die ihn von Mitko trennen. "Was zu dir gehört" ist ein tiefberührender Roman über die Macht von Scham und Sehnsucht. Und über eine Liebe entgegen jeder Wahrscheinlichkeit.
