Gay Bar - Why We Went Out

  • paperback book

    Released: 20th Jan 2022


An indispensable, intimate and stylish celebration of the institution of the gay bar, from the post-AIDS-crisis 1990s to today's fluid queer spaces.

'A brilliantly written and incisive account of gay life in Los Angeles, San Francisco and London... Atherton Lin's book is a history lesson, a travelogue, but it is also a display of a rich sensibility, a kind of autobiography using bars as its thread', Colm Tóibín, Guardian 'I can't remember the last time I've been so happily surprised and enchanted by a book.
