Bruce LaBruce is a filmmaker, writer, director, and photographer. It turns out, for example, to underlie arms races in international relations, inaction on climate change, obstacles to trade, and even natural phenomena such as why trees grow so tall—giant redwoods could save terrific resources by only growing to, say, 50 feet they usually grow to over 200 , but in the competition for light, whoever grows that bit taller at the expense of the others will do better. These limits enable Athey to explore key themes including gender, sexuality, radical sex, queer activism, post-punk and industrial culture, tattooing and body modification, ritual and religion. The resulting revised prose offers more explanation, more historical framing, more reflection—and more distance. The diverse range of artistic and critical contributors to the book reflects Athey's creative and cultural impact, among them musician Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons who contributed a foreword.
