Contents: The Bear Project and Queer Book Club are collaborating to discuss Faeries, Bears, and Leathermen: Men in Community Queering the Masculine by Peter Hennen. The book is a social psychological study on how conventional masculinity is challenged, subverted, or perpetuated in contemporary gay male culture.
Please read before coming:
-Chapter 1: “In Their Natures: Gay Men, Queer Men, and Gendered Strategies of Resistance” (pp. 1-31)
-Chapter 4: “Bear Bodies, Bear Masculinity: Recuperation, Resistance, or Retreat?” (pp. 95-133)
Of course, it’s ok if you just come and chat with us about your experiences without reading. Or conversely, if you want, you can read the entire book.
