In the early days of the AIDS epidemic “promiscuity” and public sex were frequently cited as primary causes. While gay men’s sexual behavior certainly played a part, there were many other factors at play—sexual freedom, personal development, collective intimacy, community building, and cultural expression. This seminar will explore the impact of HIV/AIDS on gay male sexuality – especially the gay male sexual subculture that existed in NYC before the epidemic, contrasted with the today’s gay male subculture of today. In this seminar we will examine the films, art, and architectural spaces that played such an important role in the development of this sexual subculture.

Seminar leaders: Jeffrey Escoffier and Kalle Westerling
