“This anthology breaks new ground by reflecting on this often-overlooked, extremely unusual work. It will undoubtedly kick-start more conversations, debates, and articles about The Boys in the Band and its historical legacy, both for queer historians and film-studies scholars. To cop a line from another bit of camp, we’ve only just begun.”
—Matthew Hays, Cineaste
