Reviews

"Fabulous lives up to its title. Who knew there was such riveting sociopolitical drama behind those velvet ropes?"-The New York Times Book Review
"This joyful cultural analysis looks at fabulousness as a queer aesthetic and political statement."-Francesca Carington, Tatler
"Fabulous is an absorbing, engagingly written, and highly insightful study of how 'beautiful eccentrics' creatively self-fashion themselves to articulate identity, assert presence, and reclaim power on the streets and in the nightclub."-Harvey Young, author of Black Theater Is Black Life
"Fabulous does not simply track new club worlds, it takes us to them. The book does not just tell us about fashion and clubs, it is immersed in the scenes it conjures. This is engaging, relevant, and glamorous." -Jack Halberstam, author of Female Masculinity and The Queer Art of Failure
"Celebrating the joys of being beautifully eccentric in a bland world, Fabulous offers a theory of fabulousness as political glitter that's both deviant and defiant. This vivid account of queer motion through clubland's portals of possibility is a clarion call for a new and colorful consciousness that can collapse stale categories, confront privilege, and combat toxic Trumpism."-Victor P. Corona, author of Night Class: A Downtown Memoir
