Evans, Arthur. Boston: FAG RAG Books, 1978. ISBN: 0915480018. Pictorial wraps. Foxing and some light soiling on covers, some slightly wavy pages. Overall very good.

The rad, gay anarchic classic. An intersectional look at witchcraft and homosexuality through the ages and the ways in which patriarchy and capitalism harm us all. In Evans's own words:

"Being gay has spiritual and historical implications. When you create for yourself a lesbian or gay identity, you are creating meaning and history. Your sex life is not just something that you do in the dark in a corner, unconnected with value and meaning. It’s one of the avenues into your humanity, history, and spirituality. That is the cornerstone of everything I’ve ever written.”

Arthur Evans was an gay rights activist, historian, and philosopher. He was a founding member of the Radical Faeries in San Francisco, a gay pagan movement dedicated to ritual work and queer community, and an early part of ACT UP/SF (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power). He died in San Francisco in 2011.
