About this title

Synopsis:

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. Queerly Classed highlights the voices of those whose experiences of class-combined with race, ethnicity, gender, ability, and age to explode stereotypes of queers aspiring to assimilate into the mainstream of the American middle class.

Review:

Gay and lesbian cultures have learned how to talk--and talk and talk and talk--about sex; no aspect of erotic life is too taboo for discussion. Issues of class and economics, however, have been so closeted that they are rarely discussed. Queerly Classed breaks through this door with almost two dozen personal and critical essays that explore the intersections between class and alternative sexual identity. Queerly Classed is neither dogmatic nor preachy, but is political in the best sense of the word: it opens both minds and hearts, encouraging people to think about these difficult issues in a clearheaded, honest way.
