Summary From Drag Queens to Leathermen examines gendered language in six gay male subcultures: drag queens, radical faeries, bears, circuit boys, barebackers, and leathermen. The chapters include ethnographic-based studies of language use in each of these subcultures, with special attention to the ways in which linguistic patterns challenge normative assumptions about gender and sexuality.
