Summary

"Gender Trouble Down Under takes up the 'Oz bloke' hypermasculine, heterosexual fantasy and shows to what extent this sexual, gender and national stereotype is odd, partial and exclusionary, in a word, queer. This re-reading of the Great Australian Legend demonstrates that Down Under is a paradise of perversion: buggery in the barracks between male convicts, cross-dressing bushrangers, bushmen as bent as a dog's hind leg, randy jackeroos ready for anything. And that is without counting the sportsmen in frocks, the queens in the desert, or Dame Edna Everage." -- BOOK JACKET.
