Revolutionary Acts: Love & Brotherhood in Black Gay Britain by Jason Okundaye


Bookseller Review by Harry:

“Sexy, loud, political, intimate, and ultimately glorious. A true work of mammoth historical dedication and care that informs as much as it entertains. A joy to read and revel in Okundaye’s talent. This book reveals a side of London and Black gay social life erased from the archive and common view and in chronicling the sex/activist/gossipy/night-lives of six Black gay men addresses the ‘deficit paradigm’ of Black queer thought. In so doing, Okundaye produces an astonishing and revolutionary account of life that immediately establishes itself as essential reading. I cannot put into words how special this book is and how powerful it is that it exists.”

In this landmark work, Jason Okundaye meets an elder generation of Black gay men and finds a spirited community full of courage, charisma and good humour, hungry to tell its past – of nightlife, resistance, political fights, loss, gossip, sex, romance and vulgarity. Through their conversations he seeks to reconcile the Black and gay narratives of Britain, narratives frequently cleaved as distinct and unrelated.
