The Making of Gay Sensibility
Michael BronskiPages: 254
Release Date: 1984-01-01
Culture Clash explores the dynamics of gay liberation and homophobia, of change and backlash, and reveals the radicalism of the challenge that gay men and lesbians, as cultural adventurers, have contributed to American society.
“Bronski looks at the interactions of American gay male subculture with the dominant straight society and at how gay artists and audiences have advanced a special sensibility. Some may disagree with Bronski's view of gay pornography as a liberating form, but his discussions on gay influence in American letters, theater, film, and opera are entirely fascinating.”—The Boston Globe
