The Valley of the Kings: Leathermen in San Francisco, 1960-2000 explores a project that studied the gay male leather population in San Francisco. This historical ethnography tracks the emergence of a distinctive local community in the 1960s, its occupation of a former industrial neighborhood, its extraordinary institutional expansion in the 1970s, its dramatic attrition in the 1980s, and its partial recuperation in the 1990s. The lectures will examine how this population of gay men has been affected by shifting taxonomies of sexual psychopathology, and how their institutional infrastructures have been enmeshed in the political economies of urban real estate.
