About this book

Sissy home boys or domestic outlaws? Through a series of vivid case studies taken from across the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Matt Cook explores the emergence of these trenchant stereotypes and looks at how they play out in the home and family lives of queer men.

Reviews

“In this scholarly but immensely readable book Matt Cook explores the domestic interiors of homosexual men at various times from the end of the 19th century to the onset of AIDS and the acceptance of gay parenting. … Cook has managed to capture the heart of the home of these gay men and brings a new insight into gendered domestic interiors, making a firm contribution to the history of homosexuality.” (Julie Peakman, History Today, Vol. 64 (12), December, 2014)
