In the 1990s gay and lesbian culture went mainstream, from Ellen's coming out episode to the push for same sex marriage. At the same time, the gay market has become one of the most sought after by advertisers like Bud Light, Absolut, Benson and Hedges, and even Ikea. But in its eagerness to be embraced by the mainstream, the gay movement's political identity has been whitewashed.

As gay men and lesbians become less of a public and more of a market, and as the movement dwindles into a trend, Chasin's insights will become more and more critical. Taking an analytical step back from the clamor for attention from pop culture and niche marketing, Selling Out reminds us of the values underlying the demand for sexual liberation, of the dangers of single-issue organizing, and of the political nature of the struggle. We dare not go forward without considering the issues Chasin raises.

In the 1990s, a new niche market emerged in the United States: gay and lesbian consumers were targeted by both mainstream and gay and lesbian producers. Selling Out asks: What is the relationship between this niche market and the social movement that works for gay and lesbian rights? Locating the niche market and social movement in the context of the rise of consumer culture and pictorial advertising and the rise of identity-based social movements over the course of the 20th century, Chasin examines specific sites of intersection between them: the gay and lesbian press, advertising, boycotting, and the mechanisms of funding the movement. Chasin identifies the dynamics of race, gender, and class, as well as the ubiquitous nationalism, that inform both political and commercial practices in the gay and lesbian community.

Chasin's analysis of the relationship between capitalism and civil rights movements (particularly the gay movement) is long overdue. It is intelligently researched and well-thought out. However I am not interested particularly in economic theory and at times the book feels too academic, like Chadrin just transposed her college dissertation to book format. If it had been better edited to perhaps weed out some of the more theoretical parts and if she had expanded on contemporary case studies the book would feel more readable to a non-business-oriented reader. I was disappointed that there was no mention of 'Gay Day' at Walt Disney World and how this very corporate commercial venue is a summer mecca for (often upper-middle class white male) gays across the U.S. as it seems like an ideal study for the subject. The author is to be commended however for her writing about the drawbacks of the 'mainstreaming' of the gay movement and how commercial gains are not necessarily positive ones.
  • Larosa
Alexandra Chasin makes some excellent points in "Selling Out," some of which I agree with, but I found Chasin's tone to be the book's greatest encumbrance. She writes about the gay and lesbian community's increasingly consumerist public facade the same way that Trotsky wrote about Stalinism in "The Revolution Betrayed." Any embrace of consumerism or superficial comfort by an individual is ultimately anti-woman, anti-minority, anti-poor, etc. For example, an advertisement for DINNERWARE inspired by Pullman dinner services from the 1930s is racist because the railroads kept blacks and Asians in subserviant positions! Sometimes it sounds like Chasin seriously expected the Stonewall riots to be the next Russian Revolution, and all gays and lesbians should have rejected the post-industrial consumerist society entirely. Maybe if Chasin herself was living in some commune in Idaho and sewing her clothes out of hemp could I find some dignity in the positions she takes, but she of all people taught at YALE, the traditional bastion of wealthy white male American power and the alma mater of President George Dubya Bush, so I find it very hard to believe that she has rejected all of the values of the bourgeoisie.

I have read many books on controversies in the gay and lesbian liberation movement, but I've read none more fascinating and eloquent than this one. Chasin challenges us to question if what we really WANT is to be a part of the homogenized mass-media culture that we've been seeking to gain acceptane in. I was also impressed by the exhaustive research that went into this piece. I was also impressed to learn that Ms. Chasin has worked with the IGLHRC association, and with up-and-coming activist Kerri Gawreluk. It's wonderful to finally see a book that is a result of collaboration between true pioneers in the new gay/lesbian generation.
