In this book, Moira Kenney makes the case that Los Angeles better represents the spectrum of gay and lesbian community activism and culture than cities with a higher gay profile. Owing to its sprawling geography and fragmented politics, Los Angeles lacks a single enclave like the Castro in San Francisco or landmarks as prominent as the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, but it has a long and instructive history of community building. By tracking the terrain of the movement since the beginnings of gay liberation in 1960s Los Angeles, Kenney shows how activists laid claim to streets, buildings, neighborhoods, and, in the example of West Hollywood, an entire city. Exploiting the area's lack of cohesion, they created a movement that maintained a remarkable flexibility and built support networks stretching from Venice Beach to East LA. Taking a different path from San Francisco and New York, gays and lesbians in Los Angeles emphasized social services, decentralized communities (usually within ethnic neighborhoods), and local as well as national politics. Kenney's grounded reading of this history celebrates the public and private forms of activism that shaped a visible and vibrant commu

Winner of the 2009 Ruth Benedict Prize for Outstanding Monograph from the Society of Lesbian and Gay Anthropologists Winner of the 2010 Distinguished Book Award from the American Sociological Association, Sociology of Sexualities Section Winner of the 2010 Congress Inaugural Qualitative Inquiry Book Award Honorable Mention From Wal-Mart drag parties to renegade Homemaker’s Clubs, Out in the Country offers an unprecedented contemporary account of the lives of today’s rural queer youth. Mary L. Gray maps out the experiences of young people living in small towns across rural Kentucky and along its desolate Appalachian borders, providing a fascinating and often surprising look at the contours of gay life beyond the big city. Gray illustrates that, against a backdrop of an increasingly impoverished and privatized rural America, LGBT youth and their allies visibly—and often vibrantly—work the boundaries of the public spaces available to them, whether in their high schools, public libraries, town hall meetings, churches, or through websites. This important book shows that, in addition to the spaces of Main Street, rural LGBT youth explore and carve out online spaces to fashion their emerging queer identities. Their triumphs and travails defy clear distinctions often drawn between online and offline experiences of identity, fundamentally redefining our understanding of the term ‘queer visibility’ and its political stakes. Gray combines ethnographic insight with incisive cultural critique, engaging with some of the biggest issues facing both queer studies and media scholarship. Out in the Country is a timely and groundbreaking study of sexuality and gender, new media, youth culture, and the meaning of identity and social movements in a digital age.

ue(e)r zu denken erfordert Mut! Queer Theory befasst sich mit gesellschaftlichen Asymmetrien vielfältiger, geschlechtlicher und sexueller Lebensweisen. Im Sinne einer widerständigen Praxis hinterfragt queer gängige Normalitätsvorstellungen und eröffnet alternative Handlungsperspektiven für einen reflektierten Umgang mit geschlechtlicher und sexueller Vielfalt. Wie aber können Erkenntnisse der Gender und Queer Studies in den MINT-Fächern und der Lehrer_innenbildung dazu beitragen, bestehende Barrieren abzubauen und die Lehre an (Hoch-)Schulen zu verbessern? Um dies herauszufinden, werden Que(e)rverbindungen zwischen Erziehungswissenschaft, MINT-Fächern und Erkenntnissen der Gender/Queer Studies ausgelotet. Der Titel Queering MINT verweist auf das Vorhaben, Themen, Inhalte und Konzepte mathematischer, naturwissenschaftlicher und technischer Fächer neu und anders zu durchdenken. Die Publikation stellt hierzu die Bedeutung geschlechterwissenschaftlicher und queerer Theorien für die Erziehungswissenschaft und Lehrer_innenbildung heraus. Sie zeigt erstmalig den aktuellen Stand queerinformierter Perspektiven in den jeweiligen MINT-Fächern/Fachdidaktiken auf und trägt exemplarische Umsetzungsbeispiele zusammen. Erprobte Konzepte und fachbezogene Strategien setzen dekonstruktive Impulse zur Professionalisierung von Lehrer_innen. Sie bieten sowohl erfahrenen als auch angehenden Lehrenden an (Hoch-)Schulen handlungspraktische Anregungen für eine genderund queersensible Lehrpraxis und leisten einen positiven Beitrag zu einer kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit Macht- und Herrschaftsverhältnissen in Bildungsinstitutionen.

A definitive collection of original essays on queer politics From Harvey Milk to ACT UP to Proposition 8, no political change in the last two decades has been as rapid as the advancement of civil rights for LGBTQ people. As we face a critical juncture in progressive activism, political science, which has been slower than most disciplines to study the complexity of queer politics, must grapple with the shifting landscape of LGBTQ rights and inclusion. LGBTQ Politics analyzes both the successes and obstacles to building the LGBTQ movement over the past twenty years, offering analyses that point to possibilities for the movement’s future. Essays cover a range of topics, including activism, law, and coalition-building, and draw on subfields such as American politics, comparative politics, political theory, and international relations. LGBTQ Politics presents the full range of methodological, ideological, and substantive approaches to LGBTQ politics that exist in political science. Analyses focused on mainstream institutional and elite politics appear alongside contributions grounded in grassroots movements and critical theory. While some essays celebrate the movement’s successes and prospects, others express concerns that its democratic basis has become undermined by a focus on funding power over people power, attempts to fragment the LGBTQ movement from racial, gender and class justice, and a persistent attachment to single-issue politics. A comprehensive, thought-provoking collection, LGBTQ Politics: A Critical Reader will give rise to continued critical discussion of the parameters of LGBTQ politics.
