Seduced and Abandoned: Essays on Gay Men and Popular Music

Front Cover
Cassell, 1995 - MUSIC - 253 pages
An examination of the different ways that gay men use pop music, as producers and consumers and how, in turn, pop music uses gay men. From Erasure 'being boring' to 'little town flirt' Suede, the essays and interviews look at how pop is a platform to explore, articulate, conform to or contest notions of sexuality and gender. Seduced and Abandoned examines themes including ambisexuality, masculinity, new lads, camp and much more, creating a collection that is both challenging and contentious. A defence of cultural differences and an attack on cultural elitism, this book is as passionate and provocative as pop itself.
