Welcome to the NEW BeyondMasculinity.com!
Beyond Masculinity is a groundbreaking collection of
22 provocative essays on sexuality, gender, and
politics -- all written by gay, bisexual,
transgender, and queer men. Part audiobook, part-blog,
and part-anthology, brings together a smart,
diverse group of queer male writers all critically
examining maleness and the construction of
masculinity and gender norms for men. Contributions
focus on five key areas: Desire, Sex and Sexuality;
Negotiating Identities; Queer Feminist Politics;
Beyond Binary Gender; and Transforming Masculinity.

Putting the Internet to work.
Beyond Masculinity was
originally conceived in 2005 as a traditional published
anthology featuring essays from queer male writers,
activists, and scholars. But we realized that by
publishing online, we could reach a much wider
audience at a lower cost - all without knocking down
any trees! Even better, new technology allows users
to interact with online material like never before.
