Title: Strangers In Paradise: Notes On The Use Of Dating Apps For Hookups In San Francisco
Title Alternative: Estranhos No Paraíso: Notas Sobre Os Usos De Aplicativos De Busca De Parceiros Sexuais Em San Francisco
Author: Miskolci R.
Abstract: Based on an ethnography conducted in San Francisco between January and August 2013, this paper explores how adult gay men use dating apps to find sexual and romantic partners. The city passed from being a center of the counterculture to a gentrified haven for hipsters and techies in a process that has also transformed its sociability. The search for gay partners has shifted from cruising to hookups, as the use of apps reinforces a progressive selection of partners based on moral criteria. © 2016, Universidade Estadual de Campinas UNICAMP.
