A double dip rife with romance and right on time for a celebration of sex and love. First, Jeremy Atherton Lin joins Eric and Medaya to talk about his new book, Gay Bar: Why We Went Out, which covers both the history of gay bars and Jeremy’s personal experiences in London, San Francisco, and Los Angeles — with a consideration of how these iconic social institutions have fared in the age of hook-up apps and a year-long pandemic. Then, Eric and Kate are joined by Brontez Purnell to discuss his new work of autofiction, 100 Boyfriends, and reflect on queer time.
