Making Out in Spanish is a fun, accessible and thorough Spanish phrase book and guide to the Spanish language as it's really spoken. Te adoro! Cuando puedo volver a verte?—(I adore you! When can I see you next time?) Answer this correctly in Spanish and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap! Spanish classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios but chances are while in a Spanish speaking country you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances—something you may not be prepared for. If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to Latin America or Spain and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Spanish phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Spanish has been carefully designed to act as a guide to modern colloquial Spanish for use in everyday informal interactions—giving access to the sort of catchy Spanish expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials. As well as the Latin script, each expression is now given in phonetics, making pronunciation a breeze. (For example, Buana idea! is also written as BWE-na ee-DE-a!). This Spanish phrasebook includes: Information about Latin American Spanish vs. Spain Spanish as well as regional dialects. A guide to pronouncing Spanish words correctly.

Making Out in the Mainstream is the first full-length study of LGBT media activism, revealing the daily struggle to reconcile economic and professional pressures with conflicting personal, organizational, and political priorities. Documenting the rise and evolution of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), Vincent Doyle presents a nuanced perspective on the complexity, contradictions, and ambivalences of advancing social causes through popular media. Based on participant observation, in-depth interviews, and archival research carried out at GLAAD’s New York and Los Angeles offices from 2000 to 2001, Making Out in the Mainstream analyzes the GLAAD Media Awards and the organization’s responses to controversial public figures such as Dr Laura Schlessinger and Eminem, and programs such as Queer as Folk. Doyle argues that the earlier political strategy of coming out to the mainstream, intended to dismantle closeted life and create a mass movement, has been supplanted by the market-oriented "making out" in the mainstream, which privileges respectable images of homosexuality in the pursuit of political and economic gain. He shows how this emphasis on respectability clashes with the development of a diverse movement that campaigns for greater inclusion and he offers a sophisticated appeal for more complicated understandings of assimilation and anti-normalization. Painting a complex portrait of a prominent gay and lesbian organization during a period of rapid social change, Making Out in the Mainstream reveals not only the limitations of “mainstreaming,” but also its political possibilities.
