HGG 2011 Gift-A-Day: ‘Gay in America’ coffee table book


Three years of work and traveling across the country, Scott Pasfield photographed the everyday men in his coffee table photo book Gay in America. You might remember we wrote about it here. With autobiographical tales of gay men in big and small cities, the book is not only a hefty present, but a telling of how vast the queer community is across the country. The book is priced at $45.

Available through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and IndieBound.org.
