Spanning more than a century of photography and film, this visual
chronicle of the evolution of gay male image culture explores a vast,
eclectic tradition. Waugh analyzes the aesthetics of the visual
imagery of homoerotica as well as its production, circulation,
consumption, and broad social and legal implications. His analysis of
gay eroticism is accompanied by 377 photographs<-->most of them of
nude men<-->ranging from the artful, pansexual works of 19th century
European studio photographers to modern commercial efforts.
