Our Naked Lives – Essays from Gay Italian-American Men edited by Michael Carosone and Joseph LoGiudice.
After finding only two books on gay Italian-American experiences, Michael Carosone and his partner, Joseph LoGiudice set out to show the voices of their own experience; growing up in a rich ethnic society while maintaining a foothold on their gay identities and activism. With no representation of their lives in Queer or Italian-American literature they collected (and contributed) to a compilation of essays that showcase the intersection of an ethnic and sexual minority: Gay Italian-Americans.
“An amazing collection of essays that finally addresses an experience so many of us share. Evocative, moving and entertaining, Our Naked Lives brings forth the stories of so many of us who’ve often felt left out in gay culture as well as Italian-American culture while simultaneously celebrates the richness of both.” – Michelangelo Signorile, Editor-at-Large The Huffington Post Gay Voices and Sirius XM Radio Host.
