The Boys in the Band: Flashpoints of Cinema, History and Queer Politics

Matt Bell, gay studies, lgbt studiesA week ago I published a blog post asking for book suggestions so imagine my surprise when a professor from a local university who happens to live in my neighborhood reached out to let me know about a book he has collaborated, edited and recently published called, The Boys in the Band’: Flashpoints of Cinema, History, and Queer Politics.

Inspired by the play / movie, this book includes a collection of essays on the 1970 film “The Boys in the Band” that would be of interest to those interested in queer studies and film.  For those who may have never had a chance to see this groundbreaking film, I’d suggest you consider streaming it.

  3. My favourite film in this genre. Everyone should own a copy – not just streamline it. It helped me understand myself and those around me. But I’m old – I got into the Continetal Baths at 16. Best hotel basement pool ever.
