My research focuses on the politics and culture of pleasure in modern America, especially in late twentieth century social movements. I’m currently finishing a book manuscript on the history and culture of gay male nightlife since 1970. In 2014, I founded Wearing Gay History, an award-winning online archive that explores the global history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people through t-shirts. I’m currently working on a digital mapping project that investigates ignored queer geography and spaces since 1965.
