First published in Italian in 1977, Mario Mieli's groundbreaking book is an early landmark of revolutionary queer theory - now available for the first time in a complete and unabridged English translation. Among the most important works ever to address the relationship between homosexuality, homophobia and capitalism, Mieli's essay continues to pose a radical challenge to today's dominant queer theory and politics. With extraordinary prescience, Mieli exposes the efficiency with which capitalism co-opts 'perversions' which are then 'sold both wholesale and retail'. In his view the liberation of homosexual desire requires the emancipation of sexuality from both patriarchal sex roles and capital. Drawing heavily upon Marx and psychoanalysis to arrive at a dazzlingly original vision, Towards a Gay Communism is a hitherto neglected classic that will be essential reading for all who seek to understand the true meaning of sexual liberation under capitalism today.

Review:

'An indispensable, pioneering example of the long, difficult effort to articulate queer struggle with anti-capitalist struggle, and especially to understand the way in which sexuality can figure into the imagination of communism' --Kevin Floyd, author of The Reification of Desire: Toward a Queer Marxism (University of Minnesota Press, 2009)

'Mieli was considerably ahead of his time... Towards a Gay Communism belongs to a visionary tradition of ecstatic utopianism... A fascinating document of its departed moment, but also as renewable inspiration for our contemporary desire to envision a future that is foreign to today' --Tim Dean

About the Author:

Mario Mieli was a leading figure in the Italian gay movement of the 1970s, respected as one of the movement's most profound intellectuals. He committed suicide in 1983 at the age of 30. His work Towards a Gay Communism (Pluto, 2018) was considered a controversial classic of the era.
