Race and Ethnicity in Queer Studies



Sexual orientation is always experienced in the context of race, ethnicity, gender, and numerous other variables. The instructors of Women’s Studies 205X: Introduction to Queer Studies will present this interconnectedness, based on the work of LGBTQ writers of color such as Audre Lorde, Paula Gunn Allen, Gloria Anzaldúa, David Eng, and Laura Harris. Students taking 205X will then lead an exercise that explores lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identity in relation to different racial/ethnic communities, including African American, Latino/a, Native American, and Asian American.
