Description

Now available in paperback, 'Gay Life and Culture' is a comprehensive, global account of gay history. It is spectacularly illustrated throughout and includes an extensive selection of images, many of them only recently recovered. From Theocritus' verses to Queer as Folk, from the berdaches of North America to the boy-wives of Aboriginal Australia, this extraordinarily wideranging book illustrates both the commonality of love and lust, and the various ways in which such desires have been constructed through the ages.
