Overview

Reeling in the Years: Gay Men's Perspectives on Age and Ageism by Tim Bergling

Reeling in the Years: Gay Men's Perspectives on Age and Ageism examines the "two tribe" mentality about age that divides the gay male community into "us" and "them." Tim Bergling, author of the critically acclaimed Sissyphobia (Haworth), uses polls, surveys, and interviews conducted with men from five different age groups to illustrate the gay community's attitudes toward age and the rites of passage associated with certain age groups. The book explores the gay experience through young, middle-aged, and elderly viewpoints, including relationships, dating younger guys, dating older guys, the Internet, sex, drugs, alcohol, HIV/AIDS, fitness, plastic surgery, retirement, harassment, and discrimination.
