Rupert continues its monthly Reading Sessions! Every month, a member of Rupert’s team or an invited guest selects material to discuss. The reading sessions are open to anyone by registration. The 19th online reading session ‘Sex lives of older gay men’ with Rob Crosse will take place on 13 December 2021, 19:00 (EET) via Zoom platform.

Registration: Register until 10 December 2021!

There will be a maximum of 30 slots for the reading session, selected on a first come first serve basis. Extracts from the texts and a Zoom link will be sent to registered participants.


Sexuality and desirability in older age is still something of a taboo. This reading session will explore a number of stories which aim to shed light on the way sexual encounters between older men are portrayed in fiction and essays, looking at how older bodies are described and some of the challenges faced by older men from different backgrounds.


Rob Crosse lives and works in Berlin. Through the use of video, photography, sculpture and performance, his work focuses on forms of intergenerational relations and the tension between care and control. He often engages with communities of older men that convene around activities which operate as mechanisms of support, modes of communication and recreation.
