Book Club Discussion (Queer)

Date: Th, 17 Aug, 8pm-10pm

Book: Faeries, Bears, and Leathermen: Men in Community Queering the Masculine by Peter Hennen.

Place: 12 Gopeng St. Meet outside Toms N Toms.

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.

Please meet outside Toms and Toms cafe at Icon Village. We will move to the condo garden upstairs promptly at 8pm. Please be punctual.
