The Faggots & Their Friends Between Revolutions invites and models the deep grieving, mutual care, love, play, commitment to pleasure, and frivolity that is so essential right now, as we face existential political and environmental crises, increasing numbness, and disconnection. Faggots & Their Friends brings to life the spirit of collective, mirthful invention in the face of dire circumstances that characterized radical experiments of the 1970's, and brings longed-for inspiration to today's fruits and nuts. Best of all, this book is fun, and moving, and sexy

30 years past a seminal book titled "The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions" was published by Calamus press, written by Larry Mitchell. An amazing work out of he radical hippie queer ethic, I remember noting this book upon many alternative bookshelves back in the day. Reading this in todays light, the prophetic aspects are a tad spooky. There even is a most interesting chapter about faeries. A taste: "The faggots and their friends now live in Ramrod, the leader of Ramrod is Warren-And-His Fuckpole.

ASTA: Living with Larry and knowing Larry, he was always writing in composition books by long hand. Originally, it had all these funny names. He thought it was a kids’ book and then he showed me what you would call a script, I guess, of the book. I said, Larry, this is not a kids’ book at all. He said, Yeah, I know, it’s my philosophy.
