Invisible. Unheard. Alone. Chilling words but apt to describe the isolation and alienation of queer youth. No longer. 'Revolutionary Voices' celebrates the hues and harmonies of the future of the gay and lesbian society, presenting not just a collection of stories but a collection of experiences, ideas, dreams and fantasies that demand not only to be heard but to be recognised as a critical component in a future society where it is hoped all members will be valued.

A good idea but the poetry is bad and the whole collection smacks of self-righteous leftism. This is coming from myself who is on the left. Poetry by white males is disgraced and instead replaced by as many token special groups as possible. I don't mind this usually, but it's the fact that preference is given to your poetry if you're a half-native half-black lesbian blind woman in a wheelchair who was raised in South Africa but now lives in a slum in Chicago.

Did I mention most of the content is bad? A lot of it is simply photocopied from "zines". Remember those? I bet most people wished they didn't. The text hasn't even been reformatted so a lot of it is hard to read, upside-down or turned 90 degrees.

The only reason I got this book is that it was banned in some schools in the US.
