Stereotypes are laid to rest in this first-ever photographic survey of gay men in America. Scott Pasfield’s Gay in America is an honest and utterly absorbing picture of contemporary gay life revealed through stunning portraits and unforgettable narratives.
Pasfield traveled 54,000 miles across all fifty states over a two-year span, gathering a vast array of stories and documenting the lives of 140 gay men from every walk of life. At turns joyful and somber, reflective and celebratory, each narrative and image is an enlightening look into the variety of gay life in the United States.
The striking, perceptive portraits reflect the same diversity found in any sampling of our population. They come in every size and shape, every religion, color, profession and background. We have farmers, writers, doctors, lawyers, artists and teachers. There are fathers, husbands, activists and more. These are men attracted to men, who have chosen not to disguise the truth. For many, there have been harsh consequences to this decision, but also extremely rich rewards. This is a book of hope, a book that suggests true equality is within reach if only we grasp for it.
