Ebooks lezen is heel makkelijk: Samenvatting To be fat in a thin-obsessed gay culturecan be difficult. Despite affectionate in-group monikers for big gay men—chubs,bears, cubs—the anti-fat stigma that persists in American culture at largestill haunts these individuals who often exist at the margins of gaycommunities. Fat gay men movies book documents performances at club events and examines howparticipants use allusion and campy-queer behavior to reconfigure and reclaimtheir sullied body images, focusing on the numerous tensions of marginalizationand dignity that big gay men experience and how they negotiate these tensionsvia their membership to a size-positive group.
A compelling and rich narrative, FatGay Men provides a rare glimpse into an unexplored dimension of weight andbody image in American culture.

In his account of big gay men reinscribing their desirability, Whitesel adds to the sociology of sexuality, class and embodiment. It is a welcome divergence from the many representations of gay men that reduce them to often mindless Adonis stereotypes, and it is warmly recommended to all would-be ethnographers.
It captures the courage and humor by which they confront fat-phobia in gay culture as well as in larger society. How Activist Groups Form [T]o say the field is overwhelmingly concerned with fat female experience is something of an understatement.
Girth, Mirth, and the Politics of Stigma captures the immediacy of the joyful and affirming performances that larger gay men use to challenge various aspects of fat stigma and the sometimes traumatizing life events that animate the resistance of big men,' while at the same time making all the necessary connections with the evolving theoretical literature. Ethnographers typically exhibit skill either in thick description or in theoretical interpretation.
Jason Whitesel is the rare ethnographer who has clearly mastered both. Men in Community Queering the Masculine Whitesel does the Girth and Mirth community justice by giving them a platform for voicing the pains and pleasures of being fat and gay in contemporary American culture.
I recommend Fat Gay Men to anyone who is interested in reading a book about courage, stigma, pool parties and sex-this book has the potential to liberate peoples' assumptions of what being a big, gay man means in society. It is unique in being the first book-length ethnographic study of fat men within the thin-preoccupied gay culture.
Whitesel's work is important, well written and helpful. A particular strength of the text lies in its ability to capture the highly personal experiences and narratives of participants with sensitivity and insight; this is a testament to Whitesel's strengths as an ethnographer and his ability to access insider knowledge.
