Harold Norse in 1986.
Click here for
one and here for two.
This time Harold Norse Reads
and I read part of a monologue by ‘I Am Not a Man’ called The Scorpio Club. ‘Bobby’
Both pieces take up questions of masculinity.
‘I am not a man’ is 1970s gay liberation merged with the peace movement
is about a frustrated group of boys who want to be men in a culture that says they’re sick and deserve to die. The Scorpio Club
They turn their anger on
Charleston’s formidable drag queens.
