Dale is in conversation with Michael Bullock, co-editor of I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT: THE 1979 DIARIES OF SEAN DELEAR from Semiotext(e). They will discuss the queer Gen X tropes raised by each work, followed by readings of select excerpts and a Q&A. Both titles are available for sale from the Bureau.

Michael Bullock is a Brooklyn-based writer, editor, and political organizer. He’s the author of Roman Catholic Jacuzzi (2012) and the editor of Peter Berlin: Artist, Icon, Photosexual (2019). In 2020 he founded the political crowdfunding platform WeeklySenator.org, of which he is the director. Bullock also holds the position of associate publisher for PIN–UP magazine and contributing editor for Apartamento.


A 2021 Lambda Literary Emerging Fellow in nonfiction, Dale Corvino found his confessional voice at the East Village queer underground literary salon “Dean Johnson’s Reading for Filth,” recounting his youth as an object of longing and later interactions with sex work. In 2018, he won the Gertrude Press Fiction contest, judged by Whiting Award recipient Brontez Purnell. Recent nonfiction includes a profile of Chilean writer Pedro Lemebel for the Gay & Lesbian Review, an essay on queer longing in the digital era for Matt Keegan’s 1996, and a chapter on sex worker representation for the 2021 Routledge Handbook of Male Sex Work, Culture, and Society.
