"What I Hold in My Hand:
Myths and Realities of Hustler Culture
A penetrating discussion between Amos Badertscher and writer Mack Friedman,
author of Strapped for Cash: A History of American Hustler Culture.

"Danny L. (born 1982) has been pretty much on the street, using drugs and hustling men, probably from the age of 10 or 12. Today this is his his sole employment. He has had throughout the years, several girlfriends (some also on heroin) and two sons, one born in 2000 and one in 2001.

"Despite this arrangement, Danny freely admits his bisexuality and his attraction to men and some male peers. Immature, impractical and emotionally fragile, he has lived at countless locations since 15 and has attempted suicide a number of times, particularly when his girlfriend threatens to leave him. Sexuality is totally fluid and prefers older men who will ensure continuing shelter and drugs."

— Amos Badertscher

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
