Summary

A pioneer of LGBTQ studies dares to suggest that gayness is a way of being that gay men must learn from one another to become who they are. The genius of gay culture resides in some of its most despised stereotypes - aestheticism, snobbery, melodrama, glamour, caricatures of women, and obsession with mothers - and in the social meaning of style.

Good Book but better Organization Preferred

As a black gay man, I’ve experienced many of the stories shared in this book. I would have preferred a better orientation/organization to the books, possibly as full case studies instead of fragmented stories. I will recommend it to others.

Very insightful book.

The author provides an insightful look into southern, gay lifestyle. As a black, gay male from the south that attended a HBCU and also lived in the North for many years I was entranced and captivated by the participants authenticity. I truly hope 🙏 the author writes more. I will be putting him on my list of favorite authors.
