The Culture of Desire: Paradox and Perversity in Gay Lives Todayby Frank Browning
From the Trade Paperback
Is there such a thing as an American gay culture--a set of styles, values, and behaviors that arises not from ethnicity or religion but from sexual orientation? How is that culture transmitted? And how is it likely to survive the depradations of homophobia and AIDS? These questions are explored by Browning, a reporter for NPR.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
"One of the most honest and provocative nonfiction books ever published on the contemporary life of gay men in America. Browning delves into not only the controversial sexuality of gay men, but also their deepest emotional strivings for community, family, and spiritual connection...This book documents our lives and examines the big question about the meaning of life, death, love, and human community."Jeffrey Escoffier, Publisher, OUT LOOK: National Lesbian and Gay Quarterly
