Written in the late 90‘s. Documenting, what life for the gay male in North America, was really like during the 70’s and 80’s, post AIDS, up until the cocktail which again re-shaped gay culture in the late 90’s, with a false sense that the cocktail was a cure and the AIDS crisis was now over. A fallacy.
The belief in the Image, and the strive for that ideal body using steriods at the gym. Muscles, short haircuts, no body hair, clones.
The increase in casual sex with or without a condom.
Leaving the gay ghettos for suburban life.
Has much changed, since?
Well written, and in depth reporting. A good read, even though a little out dated, but relevant for today.
