Book Talk: Fat Gay Men
Location: 522 West Maple Street Allentown, PA 18101
From: March 13, 2018 at 6:00pm to: 8:00pm
The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a book talk with Jason Whitesel, author of Fat Gay Men: Girth, Mirth, and the Politics of Stigma (NYU Press). A book signing will follow the talk. The author, Jason Whitesel, (Ph.D., Ohio State University) is a Women's & Gender Studies faculty member at Pace University. His research focuses on gay men's rigid body image ideal and the resulting intragroup strife among them. His recent book, Fat Gay Men: Girth, Mirth, and the Politics of Stigma, describes events at Girth & Mirth club gatherings and examines how big gay men use campy-queer behavior to reconfigure and reclaim their sullied images and identities. This is a sober social event. No alcohol will be served.
