Schulman draws from her experience living as a poor queer in New York during the AIDS genocide to explain the history of physical gentrification of neighborhoods and how that has led to social indoctrination. This was exactly the kind of book that I, as a young(ish) queer interested in radical activism, needed to read in order to better understand how the world we live in came to be.
