Event description
An opportunity to talk about a book that harnesses the power of personal story and puts it at the centre of the construction of gay life

About this event

'The Everyday lives of Gay Men, Autoethnographies of the Ordinary' is an edited book that explores what it means to think about gay men through the everyday to better understand their (our) lived experiences, how the ordinary is constructed, and how it affects broader social aspects such as education, employment, relationships, parenting, housing, health issues, immigration patterns, eligibility for social programmes, finances, and safety. Twelve men write autoethnographies of everyday life on themes ranging from contemporary history, film, mental health, friendship, intimate relationships, work, abuse of power, culture, planetary communities, and much more, to understand the subtle, often unnoticed implications that being gay has on everyday life.

In this event, you will have the opportunity to listen to the editors of the collection, some of its contributors, and members of the public engaging in a conversation about the book and its aims.

You are invited to join this event of readings and responses via Zoom. If you have a question about the book that you would like to ask during the session, you will be able to ask it on the day; if you want to write it in advance, please let us know when you book your ticket or send a message via Twitter using the handle @FromTearoom

Thank you for your time and interest!
