    Squash what you THINK you know about many stereotypes about gay black men (GBM) of the south, this book "BRINGS IT". While some stereotypes are self-actualized, most GBM inwardly chuckle at the misconceptions about how they "get down". I enjoyed this book because it was told from the perspective of several GBM Who unabashedly describe (some in detail) their own personal experiences that shaped who they are. I would recommend this book for an honest look inside the lives of GBM of the"South".

    Very slow reading but fascinating collection of interviews gathered by the author in 2004-2005 in different cities in the South, including several from men in New Orleans. One narrator, Countess Vivian, lived directly across the street from me when I first moved to New Orleans and into the French Quarter. Instructed me a lot in a culture outside my norm - very interesting. Because he quotes the narrators exactly, it can be hard to follow sometimes.

    Most of the men interviewed, grew up in the South and have remained in the South. But I think the book can be applied specifically to many black gay men regardless of geographical location. An interesting academic exercise...

    I saw E. Patrick Johnson do an informal performance of some of the stories in the book. Really fascinating stories to be sure. Can't wait to read it when I have more time. I saw E.
