In this groundbreaking book, playwright and social critic Sarah Schulman explores the family, the first place where all people: straight, gay, and bisexual, learn homophobia. It is within the family that homophobia begins to control the lives of perpetrators and recipients. Written in the tradition of Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape (Ballantine Books, 2000), which transformed rape from a private problem into an internationally recognised cultural crisis. Ties That Bind uncovers the hidden crime of 'familial homophobia' and moves it into the open.
Sarah Schulman is the author of seventeen books and a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Fulbright award. She is Distinguished Professor of Humanities at the City University of New York, College of Staten Island, and a fellow at the New York Institute for the Humanities at New York University.
