Queer Community : Identities, Intimacies, and Ideology Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Sociology series
The context for this work is defined by a second wave of social and political activity contextualized by queer.
For example, three, self-identified black, queer women started the Black Lives Matter movement.
For a new generation, the first-wave reclamation of queer speaks to their position in a world that continues to marginalize and oppress, particularly sexually and gender fluid and non-normative people. Using empirical work carried out by the author, Queer Community describes queer-identified people, their intimate relationships, and how they are evolving as a unique community along politically-charged, ideological lines.
Following an exploration of the history and context of 'queer' - including activism and the evolution of queer theory - this book examines how queer-identified people define the identity, with reference to 'queer' as a sexual moniker, gender moniker, and political ideology. Queer Community will appeal to scholars and students interested in sociology, queer theory, sexuality studies, gender studies, cultural studies, and contemporary social movements.
