Author Christopher Duquette reads a chapter from Homo GoGo Man: a fairytale about a boy who grew up in discoland, a novel about club hopping in New York City from 1976 – 2004. Duquette will be accompanied by a DJ playing music relative to the hedonistic disco era that captivated and eventually devoured a curious and confused young man who had been fatally bitten by the disco bug, hoofing professionally and recreationally for thirty years of his adult life.

 

Born in 1958 like Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson (R.I.P.), Christopher Duquette was part of the X-gens who wanted the most out of life, regardless of the cost. Proving his emotionally and financially unsupportive parents wrong, he succeeded in completing a Master Degree in 5 years from Stony Brook University, found cache in the corporate world acquiring well paid employment to finance his hedonistic lifestyle until crashing and burning from too much of the above at age 44.
