Mary L. Gray (Out in the Country: Youth, Media, and Queer Visibility in Rural America): Here are a few titles on the top of my favorites list: David Valentine, Imagining Transgender: An Ethnography of a Category. Lee Badgett, When Gay People Get Married: What Happens When Societies Legalize Same-Sex Marriage. Nancy Polikoff, Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage: Valuing All Families under the Law. Staceyann Chin, The Other Side of Paradise: A Memoir, and E. Lynn Harris, Basketball Jones (gotta love trashy gay novels!).
