Queering Constructs: Proposing a Dynamic Gender and Sexuality Model
Jourian, T. J.
Educational Forum, v79 n4 p459-474 2015
Higher education educators commonly understand social identities, including gender, to be fluid and dynamic. Lev's (2004) model of four components of sexual identity is commonly used to demonstrate the fluidity of sex, gender, and sexuality for individuals, but it does little to address the fixedness of those constructs. Through a multipronged intersectional framework and by centering trans* students, this article proposes a more dynamic model for gender and sexuality.
