See Ann Cvetkovich, An Archive of Feelings: Trauma, Sexuality, and Lesbian Public Cultures (Durham and London, 2003); Judith Halberstam, In a Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives (New York: New York University Press, 2005); José Esteban Muñoz, Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity (New York: New York University Press, 2009); a double issue on queer archiving in Radical History Review 120 (Fall 2014) and 122 (Spring 2015), eds. Daniel Marshall, Kevin P. Murhpy, and Zeb Tortorici. For an instance of how literally and unprofessionally cruising and queer scholarship can go, see the infamous Laud Humphreys, Tearoom Trade: Impersonal Sex in Public Places (New York and London: Routledge, 1975), originally published in 1970 by Transaction Publishers with the subtitle “A Study of Homosexual Encounters in Public Places.”
