In The Sexual Outlaw I found a book that was as brutally honest as it was searing. The Sexual Outlaw stands as a statement of its times. It's difficult to read it now without thinking of how many lives have been lost to AIDS. The book alternates between chapters in which "Jim" (the stand-in for Rechy) cruises the parks, bars, bathhouses and beaches of . for sex and chapters in which Rechy turns his attention to such subjects as police corruption, the court system, discrimination, S&M, and a subject he returns to frequently - promiscuity as a revolutionary act. As a Midwestern guy in his late teens, the book was both offputting and a revelation.

Back in the late '70s when this book first came out I remember snatching up a copy at the college bookstore. I was already familar with John Rechy after reading his groundbreaking 1963 novel City of Night. In The Sexual Outlaw I found a book that was as brutally honest as it was searing.

The book alternates between chapters in which "Jim" (the stand-in for Rechy) cruises the parks, bars, bathhouses and beaches of L.A. for sex and chapters in which Rechy turns his attention to such subjects as police corruption, the court system, discrimination, S&M, and a subject he returns to frequently - promiscuity as a revolutionary act.

As a Midwestern guy in his late teens, the book was both offputting and a revelation. Offputing because the open embrace of sexuality was an aspect of being gay I hadn't seen in the Midwest and a revelation because the arguments that Rechy put forth against those who would condemn gay sexuality gave me my first answers to refute the anti-gay attitudes that were prevalent at the time. (In fact, I was surprised to be reading a section of the book when I came across a statement I have used many times in support of gay issues. It hadn't occurred to me where the statement came from until I found it as I re-read the book.)

The Sexual Outlaw stands as a statement of its times. It's difficult to read it now without thinking of how many lives have been lost to AIDS. Looking back, it's hard to imagine how different life was in that brief 12-year period between the Stonewall riots and birth of the modern gay liberation movement in 1969 and the discovery of AIDS in 1981. This book is a sort of time capsule of that brief era.

John Rechy is a classic writer, as the top of his form in this book. The narrative parts are neatly written, not too many adjectives, not too much drama, so you have to fill in a lot of it in your own mind. In between the narrative are passages about how it was being gay in Los Angeles during the 1970's. They're valuable historically, but also for Rechy's vision of what it means to live with dignity in a world of judgment and oppression. It's just a beautiful book overall, and I'm glad I bought it.

Essential reading for every gay man. This is a decent follow up to his better City of Night novel. The writing is a bit lacking but still worth a read

Good read A++

John Rechy is the gay prophet of his time. This is a landmark book. Much much admiration.
Marg
Classic book with very visual story writing.
JOGETIME
Great story! So glad it is available on Kindle. A classic gay man's story before the era of AIDS. Very empowering reading.
This important piece of Gay literature is often overlooked. It is the voice of an entire sub-genre of our fight for equality, one whose voice made us seen, but now seems all but forgotten.
