Synopsis

Synopsis

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.

Praise

Praise

"The Culture of Desire is absolutely cutting edge--a portrait of modern sexual politics [that] should be required reading."--Armistead Maupin

"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
