Queers are accused, among other things, of strategizing to recruit children into sexually deviant lifestyles- dismantling family and marriage as cornerstones of civilization- and forcing the entertainment industry and court systems to do their bidding.

Queers certainly do have an agenda but it is not the one that the religious right claims it is. It is to assert their presence in the public space- claim and name their identities- and strategize for social justice in law, schools, and workplaces. The Gay Agenda: Claiming Space, Identity, and Justice claims and reclaims the language of -agenda and turns the rhetoric of the religious right on its ear. The contributors provide insightful and sharp commentary on gay agendas for human rights, marriage and family, cultural influences, schooling and education, and politics and law.
