This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. One Dimensional Queer is a history, and critique, of the queer movement. Ferguson explored the changes in the Queer movement, taking it from its freewheeling birth to the business structure of the present day. The author argued that the Queer movement has changed. Ferguson argued that the movement was birthed by actors from various sectors of the Queer, LGBT+, community. The author introduces; Trans individuals, drag queens, Black people, etc... who were at the heart of the early history of the movement. Ferguson argues that the movements drive to become more compatible with capitalism and its attempts to become more ‘professional’ and Business-like has meant a focus on Gay, Cis, white, able bodied men. These individuals are the new key actors in the movement. They are the movements ambassadors and shapers. Ferguson argues that this has excluded many voices, has weakened the ‘queer rights’ movement and left the needs of many individuals unaddressed. This is a powerful book that needs an audience.
