The Sexual Outlaw stands as a statement of its times. It's difficult to read it now without thinking of how many lives have been lost to AIDS. John Rechy is the gay prophet of his time. This is a landmark book. Much much admiration.
The Sexual Outlaw stands as a statement of its times. Looking back, it's hard to imagine how different life was in that brief 12-year period between the Stonewall riots and birth of the modern gay liberation movement in 1969 and the discovery of AIDS in 1981.

The essays function as voice-overs and speak at times in affirmation of Jims actions, at other times in questioning, still others in argument, even opposition. The deliberate fluctuations and contradictions are essential to the meaning of this book.
Rechy addresses similar themes in a later work that is equally well known, The Sexual Outlaw (1977), which he has described as an experiment with the novel form. Ostensibly a documentary of the life of a gay man, the book is also a critique of American values and morality.

The ugly and the beautiful, shown side by side, simultaneously, run concurrent, until one may be prompted to ask which is which.
