Hardly a day goes by without the media focusing an often sympathetic beam on gay life – and, with AIDS, on gay death. Gay plays on Broadway, Hollywood movies with gay themes, gay and lesbian studies at universities, openly gay columnists and even editors at national mainstream publications, political leaders speaking in favor of gay rights – it seems that straight American has finally begun to listen to homosexual America. Still, Bersani notes, not only has homophobia grown more virulent, but many gay men and lesbians themselves are reluctant to be identified as homosexuals. In ‘Homos,’ he studies the historical, political, and philosophical grounds for the current distrust, within the gay community, of self-identifying moves, for the paradoxical desire to be invisibly visible. While acknowledging the dangers of any kind of group identification, Bersani argues for a bolder presentation what it means to be gay.
