Reviews

"Who Needs Gay Bars offers a powerful collection of microsociological portraits of gay bars across the United States. It accumulates into a nuanced map of a queer world shaped by desire, social and political urgencies, and politico-economic pressures as diverse as the community--from large urban to isolate rural outposts. It is ambitious in its expanse and surprisingly intimate in approach."--Ramón H. Rivera-Servera, The University of Texas, Austin
