Diversity of American Gay Men Celebrated in New Book

Tomorrow, New York-based photographer Scott Pasfield will release a ground-breaking photography book that chronicles the modern life of gay men across the United States. The product of a three-year journey around the country, Pasfield’s book Gay in America features portraits of gay men from all 50 states that represent a range of social, professional, ethnic, socio-economic and religious experiences.

GLAAD recently spoke to Pasfield about the project and his motivations behind it.

“I wish there was a book like this when I was growing up and that is why I did it, really,” Pasfield said. “I wanted to know that I could live wherever I chose, in any place, in any state, in any situation, in any city, in any town, and do whatever I wanted.”

Gay in America is published by Welcome Books and can be purchased from Barnes and Noble stores, Amazon.com, and Shop Indie Bookstores.
