Reading is fundamental!
Condragulations! Fenton Bailey‘s ScreenAge has been longlisted for the Polari Book Prize 2023!
Polari Prize founder, Paul Burston, said, “This year’s Polari Prize long lists demonstrate a diverse range of LGBTQ literary talent, writing across many different genres and from a wide variety of perspectives. The volume and quality of submissions was extremely high this year, and the judges really had their work cut out. But these are long lists we can all be proud of. At a time when LGBTQ people are under attack, our stories matter more than ever. These are our stories. Read them. Learn from them. Celebrate them.”
Those interested in the New York art and club scenes of the 1980s, the indie film scene of the 1990s, or the evolution of television from the late twentieth century to today will find ScreenAge to be a must-read as it features some of the most compelling media figures from the past 40 years: Tammy Faye Bakker, Michael Milken, Monica Lewinsky, OJ Simpson, Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Jackson, Pete Burns, Tori Spelling, Heidi Fleiss, Carrie Fisher, Stanley Kubrick, Chaz Bono, Robert Mapplethorpe, Britney Spears, and RuPaul.
