Acerca de


Since its publication a decade ago, this Lambda Literary Award-nominated book has become a classic must-read on the shelf of books adressing human sexuality and identity. Spanning the decades from the 1940s onward, this collection of vibrant writing documents the many eras and shifts of attitude that have informed the gay and lesbian leather underground and its influence on the society beyond. A new preface by editor Mark Thompson, and a new annotated bibliography provide an up-to-date look at this community and provide valuable resources for researchers and interested parties.

Mark Thompson is the author of Gay Body, Gay Spirit, and Gay Soul. He lives in Los Angeles.

From the Publisher:

When mystery enters our lives and stays there, we are set off from others. And, like a stranger who becomes a trusted friend, that mystery can grow into wonder about the endless possibilities of who we are. Certainly there is no group more cloaked within the mystery and wonder of gay life than leatherfolk, an odd tribe within a tribe that arouses feelings both hostile and seductive.

This book is a collection of writings by men and women who share little in common other than the desire to explore taboo realms and intense erotic experience. In fact, this is the first co-gender, nonfiction anthology to address the complex and sometimes unspeakable topic of sadomasochistic sexuality and the subculture that has formed around it. As a result, Leatherfolk is about many things, including the formation of a rapidly growing community within today's gay world and the meanings of seemingly incomprehensible sexual acts. the style of writing covers a spectrum as well: historical memoir, social commentary, and personal testimony. -Mark Thompson
