About the book:

Twink Studies (early/late 2018) will be the first book ever to discuss twink identity and subculture in-depth. Few journals or mainstream publications have ever delved into twinkhood. Standing in a liminal place between masculinity and femininity and carrying a bit of baggage from each side, twinks are simultaneously described as “thin, smooth, and buff”, “slim or waiflike”, “effeminate”, and “presumably shallow and air-headed”. What’s a boy to do?

Topics of exploration will include origins of the term, relationship of twinks with popular culture and the gay mainstream, interviews, opposition and attraction to bears and other subsets of the gay community, gender embodiment, performance, and anxieties, pornography, cultural crossovers and relationship with race, youth and ageism, and twinks in online dating.

They have an AA in LGBT Studies from City College of San Francisco and a BA in Studio Art (major) and Human Sexuality Studies (minor) from San Francisco State University.
