    Queer without Fear Domestic and Family Violence in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Relationships ONLY TAKE THIS BOOKLET WITH YOU IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO This booklet contains information and referral details for people who may be experiencing abuse within an LGBT relationship. 1.   By Josh Watkins. Walking into a Fear the Queer (FTQ) show is like being transported into a world of queer fantasy and fiction. The music is loud, the lights are dimmed, and the boundaries of drag and art are being pushed and pulled in every direction. Self – described as “a perfectly peculiar posse of performers,” “an incubator of talent,” and “a safe haven for the alternative.

    Tison Pugh charts the history of increasing sexual depiction in this genre while also unpacking how sitcoms use sexuality as a source of power, as a kind of camouflage, and as a foundation for family building. The book examines how queerness, at first latent, became a vibrant yet continually conflicted part of the family-sitcom tradition. The book has been described as a classic of the debates on normalcy as a goal for the gay rights movement, and as an important contribution to queer theory.

    At the same time, innovative intellectual energies have made queer theory an explosive field of study. In "Fear of a Queer Planet", Michael Warner draws on emerging new queer politics, and shows how queer activists have come to challenge basic assumptions about the social and political world. Of the 22 stories in Queer Fear II, 18 have gay male protagonists, two have lesbian protagonists and two are mixed. Of the male-oriented stories, some have references to high school closet cases with crushes on dusky or athletic fellow students. Two delightfully creepy stories in this vein are Scott Treleaven’s Bugcrush and Ron Oliver’s Want.
