It’s closing time for an alarming number of gay bars in cities around the globe—but it’s definitely not the last dance 

In this journey into underground parties, pulsating with life and possibility, Amin Ghaziani unveils the unexpected revolution revitalizing urban nightlife. 

Far from the gay bar with its largely white, gay male clientele, here is a dazzling scene of secret parties—club nights—wherein queer, trans, and racial minorities, reclaim the night in the name of those too long left out. Episodic, nomadic, and radically inclusive, club nights are refashioning queer nightlife in imaginative and powerfully defiant ways. 

Drawing on Ghaziani’s immersive encounters at underground parties in London and more than one hundred interviews with everyone from bar owners to party producers, revellers to rabble rousers, Long Live Queer Nightlife showcases a spectacular vision of a queer world shimmering with self-empowerment, inventiveness, and joy.

Amin Ghaziani is professor of sociology and Canada Research Chair in Urban Sexualities at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of The Dividends of Dissent, Sex Cultures, and (Princeton). His work has been featured in the New Yorker, the Financial Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Guardian, USA Today, and British Vogue.

Ideally of course this event should be late, in a night club, with loud music and sweat dripping off  the walls, rather than a bijou bookshop in the early evening, but hey…
