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.”
GLAAD is excited to see the honest and heartfelt representation of gay men in Gay in America and congratulates Pasfield for seeking out stories from a diverse range of people.
Gay in America is published by Welcome Books and can be purchased from Barnes and Noble stores, Amazon.com, and Shop Indie Bookstores.
