Abstract

Tim Miller has established himself as a critical voice in the development of gay male culture in the United States. For over twenty years, Miller has used performance as a way of addressing US policy, AIDS activism, community building, and the importance of private lives in public contexts. This essay is a tropological analysis across Miller’s oeuvre. Themes analyzed include the clean, anal body; whiteness, maleness, and their (unnamed) privileges; suffering, pleasure, and self-making; roles of an audience-as-community; and rhetorics of justice.
