Joseph and His “Friend” (*wink*)

Buttigieg for President!  Kidding.  We’re not endorsing anyone…yet, but for Queer and Now we do discuss the representational significance of a gay man running for president.  We then dive into this week’s novel, Bayard Taylor’s Joseph and His Friend: A Story of Pennsylvania, a story of how a chance encounter on a train turns into what looks a lot like romance.  Travis’s research about the author gives us clues about Taylor’s potential queerness, and one detail from the author’s biography gives Charles a new life goal.
