Bite Size Theory: How to be Gay

“Subjectivity without psychology. There must be ways of getting at the inner life of human subjects, and of gay men in particular, without delving into the peculiar constitution of the individual. The study of social practices, aesthetic practices, styles, tastes, feelings – analyzed so as to disclose their internal structures, formal logic, cultural operation, meaning and distribution – could provide an alternative and fresh approach to human subjectivity.”

David Halperin, 2012, How to be Gay, Harvard University Press.
