For Goldstein, the rise of the gay right points to some weaknesses in liberal gay activism, and he exhorts bourgeois "strivers" not to abandon their more radical counterparts. Village Voice veteran Goldstein trumpets the countercharge against the gay right, who are not homosexual Republicans but "attack queers" Andrew Sullivan, Norah Vincent, and Camille Paglia.

The Attack Queers offers such a critique. It describes how the gay Right agenda differs from the one the queer community has long embraced. Never abandoning its analysis of the complex relationship between homosexuals and liberal society, the book examines the conflict between liberationists and assimilationists that has raged since the Stonewall era, and explores how political success tipped the balance and facilitated the rise of the gay Right.
