About the Author

Nickl Rumens, Senior Lecturer, University of Bristol, UK


'Workplaces are sometimes imagined as stern grey bureaucracies, with employees leaving their real selves at the door. In Queer Company, Nick Rumens shows us that sexuality and friendship are just as much part of work as the MBA and the photocopier. This lovely book tells us a great deal about more than just gay men's friendships, and will be important to anyone interested in the relationship between "public" and "private" lives.' Martin Parker, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, UK 'Queer Company: The Role and Meaning of Friendship in Gay Men's Work Lives insightfully illustrates what a strong sociological approach to studying friendship means. Rumens clearly portrays in rich detail how gay men make friends and construct relationships in the workplace. In so doing, the book establishes the importance of friendship in gay men's lives and the opportunities and obstacles in achieving intimacy and identity in what can often be a challenging social context.' Peter M. Nardi, Pitzer College, USA
