Description - Black Gay Man by Robert F. Reid-Pharr
At turns biographical, political, erotic, and humorous, "Black Gay Man" aims to spoil preconceived notions of not only what it means to be black, gay and male but also what it means to be a contemporary intellectual. Both a celebration of black gay male identity as well as a critique of the structures that allow for the production of that identity, this text introduces the new voice of Robert Reid-Pharr in cultural criticism.
