Queer Theory and Intersectionality

Elsevier, International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), 2015, Pages 765-770.

This article uses theoretical insights to explore the future of queer theory as it engages with intersectionality in a manner that will lead to the development of a framework that articulates the complexities of the lives produced by intersections of gender, race, culture, identity, and sexuality. This direction involves exploring the nonnormative alignments of sexuality, resisting the tendency to essentialize identity or conflate it with mainstream definitions of gender and sexual expressions.
