Queerly Classed


This collection of thoughtful, courageous, and honest essays explores the intersections of class background, social status, and "queerness", challenging the often narrow and rigid definition of gay and lesbian community. By highlighting race, ethnicity, gender, ability, and age, the contributors to Queerly Classed explode stereotypes of queers aspiring to assimilate into the mainstream of the American middle class. Rather, these authors address the radical impact of intertwined forms of inequality on identity, empowerment, and activism.
