Camp Out

Queer Memories of Summers Past



Boys and Balls, by Sean Bugg Boys and Balls, by Randy Shulman Boys and Balls, by Will O'Bryan

Ah, summer, the season most attuned to the coming of age of the all-American boy — even the all-American gay boy. And what’s more representative of that iconic coming-of-age experience than summer camp? Basket-weaving, Bible-reading, row-boat rowing summer camp. It’s an experience that lasts a lifetime.
