Long Live the Queen! The Persistence of Gay Culture

David Halperin

Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Frick Center, Founders Lounge
7:00 PM

What does Joan Crawford have to do with being gay? Quite a bit, says David Halperin, a professor of the history and theory of sexuality at the University of Michigan and the author of the provocative book How to Be Gay. Halperin describes how gay men develop “a conscious identity” and “a common culture,” and explores why Crawford, Madonna, Broadway, Mini Coopers and Judy Garland came to matter so much to so many gay men.
