Gay Men at the Movies: Cinema, Memory and the History of a Gay Male Community

Author(s): Scott McKinnon

Popular Culture

Cinema has long played a major role in the formation of community among marginalized groups, and this book details that process for gay men in Sydney, Australia from the 1950s to the present. Scott McKinnon builds the book from a variety of sources, including film reviews, media reports, personal memoirs, oral histories, and a striking range of films, all deployed to answer the question of understanding cinema-going as a moment of connection to community and identity how the experience of seeing these films and being part of an audience helped to build a community among the gay men of Sydney in the period.
