"“vogueing,” in particular, was inspired by the high-fashion poses seen in the pages of Vogue. But it’s always far more unsettling to see the middle or upper classes appropriate a less privileged class."

 

Like when a white pop star named Madonna re-appropriates the term "vogue" for a mainstream pop hit.

Rose Tremain's Sacred Country should be on this list. Maybe not as well known as some of the others, but every bit as good.

 @sleaterfan The author doesn't say the list is exhaustive. To call it homophobic is a ridiculous overstatement. You could simply express your desire to see LGBT representation without accusing someone of hatred. Flavorwire is across the board an inclusive site that celebrates diversity in art and culture. Are you new here? Take a look around before labeling someone a bigot. Or are you that comfortable making snap judgments and jumping to conclusions about people?
