Abstract

Gay geographies refer to the distinctive sociospatial distributions of gay populations (particularly gay men), as well as the social and commercial spaces and institutions which provide focus for a gay community. In Western society, the visibility, form, and function of gay-oriented spaces has changed significantly through different historical periods, largely determined by the amount of tolerance shown toward homosexuality at a particular time.
