Butch queens in macho drag: gay men, dress, and subcultural identity

Cole, Shaun (2008) Butch queens in macho drag: gay men, dress, and subcultural identity. In: Men’s Fashion Reader. Fairchild Books, New York. ISBN 9781563675362

Type of Research: Book Section
Creators: Cole, Shaun

This chapter addresses the evolution of gay identity in the late 20th and early 21st centuries and the use of appearance to define that identity from within the gay community. Rather than fixing their collective identity on a sort of masculine-feminine conundrum, this chapter describes how gay men formed various style-based subcultures in an effort to negotiate what it means to be a gay man in Western society.
