(1) Robert T. Francoeur. The Complete Dictionary of Sexology : ' A complex set of gay affectations in dress, personal manner, style, language, and humor, all marked by exaggeration, insult, extravagance, and a satiric sense of the ludicrous and the artificiality of social convention, both gay and straight . In some large urban settings, camp is a life-style enjoyed for its fast-paced sophistication by both gay and nongay individuals .'
(2) Susan Sontag. Notes on Camp (1964): ' The hallmark of Camp is the spirit of extravagance .'
(3) Bruce Rodgers. The Queens' Vernacular (1972): ' Camp is burlesque, fun, an ability to poke a jocular finger at one's-own frustrations and guffaw at the struggles of other pathetics, homosexuals or famous, influential people .'
