Praise for Generation Q

"Outrageously irreverent and screamingly funny. . . . A celebration of the queer individual."

The Advocate

"With wit, anger, honesty, and the sense of open-minded romantic cynicism unique to the twenties/early thirties crowd, this book should be read by every older gay person who claims not to understand the younger generation. By the book's end, you will have 'gotten it.'"

Rachel Pepper in Curve

"The zany prologue by Hedda Lettuce left me with a lump in my throat. . . . These youth are speaking out frankly, with passion, pathos, humor, and sentiment."

The Lesbian Review of Books

"Important, inspirational, and ground-breaking in the best tradition of Alyson."

XY Magazine

The essays "all possess a toughness of spirit--as well as solid writing ability--that clearly demonstrates this generation's determination to live queerly despite (or because of) the consequences."


"Important, moving and challenging."


"I can only hope that the larger gay community takes notice of 'Generation Q,' because it is a most effective and important representation of the hopes and fears of the twentysomethings among us. . . . By offering this anthology, Robin Bernstein and Seth Silberman have built a bridge of sorts, fashioned out of words, ideas, rainbow flags, pink triangles and leather, to span the ideological chasms which often separate us."

Bay Windows

"A treat! . . . A fabulous array of tales. . . Bernstein and Silberman have achieved every editor's goal of presenting quality writing while still preserving each distinct voice."
