"Hawkeswood has made an important contribution in light of the fact that research on gay men “rarely focuses on minority groups." This book helps to fill that void, giving us a rich detailed familiarity with the institutional affiliations, identity practices, and spiritual sensibilities of 57 adult gay men of African descent living in Harlem. . . . The text is strong on details in the lives of these men, with many long richly detailed quotes that provide us with a better understanding of how they give meaning and significance to many aspects of their lives."

"This is an important book. It provides a useful complement to the many ethnographies of black urban life that ignore gay life and the social richness of daily life in black urban enclaves. It is especially important for the growing field of sex studies."
