Michael Nava has published a thoughtful article in LARB about the author Joseph Hansen Gay Noir Pioneer
I recommend reading the Dave Brandsetter mystery novels if you can get your hands on them. They feature an openly gay detective and offer a fascinating window onto the lives of gay men and, to some extent, lesbians in the 1960s and 70s. Hansen also has a really interesting writing style.
Great article from Dazed about the 40th birthday of London’s fabulous LGBT bookshop Gay’s the Word
It’s a special place and we always pay a visit whenever we’re in London.
