Geographies of Sexualities

Author: David Bell,Gill Valentine

Publisher: Psychology Press

ISBN: 0415111641

Category: Social Science

Page: 370

View: 2019

This is the first book to explore sexualities from a geographical perspective. The nature of place and notions of space are of increasing centrality to cultural and social theory. Mapping Desire presents the rich and diverse world of contemporary sexuality, exploring how the heterosexual body has been appropriated and resisted on the individual, community and city scales. The geographies presented here range across Europe, America, Australasia, Africa, the Pacific and the imaginary, cutting across city and country and analysing the positions of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and heterosexuals. The contributors ring different interests and approaches to bear on theoretical and empirical material from a wide range of sources. The book is divided into four sections: cartographies/identities; sexualised spaces: global/local; sexualised spaces: local/global; sites of resistance. Each section is separately introduced. Beyond the bibliography, an annotated guide to further reading is also provided to help the reader map their own way through the literature.

An unabashedly campy travel guide to the attractions of gay and lesbian New York -- The series has developed a cult following among both tourist and locals -- A companion edition to Betty and Pansy's Severe Queer Review of San Francisco -- Convenient pocket-size edition This campy, irreverent travel guide to New York City, with annotations by Betty and Pansy, takes the queer traveler and resident alike through an unending array of bars, clubs, restaurants, cruising areas, and other attractions of lesbian and gay New York. From the historic gay landmarks of the West Village and the gym queens of Chelsea to the cruising venues of Times Square and the lesbian hangouts of Park Slope, Betty and Pansy are as trashy and opinionated as only two queens can be. Cattiness, sarcasm, dish, and dirt -- it's all here. Yet Betty and Pansy are also veteran travel writers -- Betty wrote and self-published Severe Queer guides to Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. This edition features an expanded lesbian section that includes Brooklyn resources, as many lesbian restaurants and other hot spots are located across the bridge. "... pulls no punches in its assessments of San Francisco gay entertainment -- hysterically funny and frank". -- Rough Guide to San Francisco

Looking for a travel guide that goes where other guides fear to tread? One that rides roughshod over ad-copy puffery to smartly deliver the real scoop on a destination's sites and attractions? One that dares to be honest, hip, and fun? Look no more. Frommer's Irreverent Travel Guides are wickedly irreverent, unabashedly honest, and downright hilarious, and provide an insider's perspective on which attractions are overrated tourist traps and which are the secret gems that locals love. You'll get the lowdown on restaurants, lodging, and shopping, and even find out what the locals think of you. "Like being taken around by a savvy local," said the New York Times. "Hipper and savvier than other guides," concurred Diversion magazine. Never shy about confronting the issues, the Irreverents are guides to real travel in the real world. It's easy to leave your heart in one of America's most beautiful and visited cities, but you don't have to follow the crowds to do it. Go behind the scenes with Frommer's Irreverent Guide to San Francisco and experience the city as the local do. You'll discover how to get into the open morning rehearsals at the San Francisco Symphony, how to hop a cable car without waiting in line, and how to wrangle a seat at some of the city's best restaurants without reservations. You'll learn that uttering the word "Frisco" can actually make a local loco, and how to endear yourself to San Francisco cabbies. Frommer's Irreverent Guide to San Francisco give you all that, plus the inside scoop on the tastiest meals, the smartest clubs, and the coziest love nests.
