Judith Stacey

New York University

Judith Stacey, Professor of Sociology and Gender and Sexuality at New York University, will finish writing an ethnographic book about gay male intimacy in Los Angeles. Based on ethnographic interviews and fieldwork with 50 gay men from diverse backgrounds, the book will discuss the social implications of trends in family values, planned gay parenthood, interracial intimacy, fidelity, and “open relationships” among gay men. The book will also look at gay-friendly family policies enacted in other nations and will discuss how U.S. public policy can be changed to better reflect changing family forms.
