Discussions of gay culture and gay politics traditionally have concerned "civil rights," "artistic influence," and "sexual freedom." Rarely has the concept of how gay people relate to material space been addressed. Aaron Betsky's Queer Space: Architecture and Same-Sex Desire is an important, ground-breaking book that examines how homosexual people live in physical space and how they are in the forefront of creating new concepts of space, for themselves as well as for the rest of the world. Queer Space is smart, well written, and filled with illustrations. Betsky's thesis--that "the purpose of queer space is ultimately sex"--is passionately argued and highly convincing. This is a major work of gay and social studies.About the Author:
Aaron Betsky is Curator of Architecture and Design at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
