Description
Information
“What emerged in this ground-breaking research was a sociological portrait of conservative and tormented lives: married men, family men, conservative men, whose personal proclivities and preferences were powerful enough, institutionally grounded enough, to break through the conventions of social life.”
—Sociological Inquiry
Tearoom Trade describes impersonal, anonymous sexual encounters in public restrooms—“tearooms” in the argot—and explores the behavior of men whose closet homosexuality is kept from their family and neighbors.
