Naked Boys Reading curated by Alan Hollinghurst

The next Naked Boys Reading evening is back this month, July 27th for their summer event at the Ace Hotel. NBR is delighted to have as guest curator, acclaimed author, Mann Booker prize winner, Alan Hollinghurst (The Swimming-Pool Library, The Line of Beauty). 

When the Sexual Offences bill became law in England and Wales, fifty years ago this month, it at last became possible to write openly about love between men.  This event celebrates that subject, partly in the new writing which then emerged, but also in private or clandestine texts going back to the 18th century – the extravagant love-letters of a famous courtier, a pornographic novel once attributed to Oscar Wilde, a story by E. M. Forster published only after his death.  Then, in fiction and poetry of the past 25 years, we see writers exploring gay love as a subject in all its proper complexity.

The evening is hosted, as usual, by Dr Sharon Husbands with disc jockess, the Duchess of Porc. The boys reading are Guiseppe, Theo, Ernesto Andrew and Rowland.
