"I Think It's Very Much Placed on Us": Black Queer Men Laboring to Forge Community at a Predominantly White and (Hetero) Cisnormative Research Institution
Blockett, Reginald A.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n8 p800-816 2017
The sociopolitical conditions in which Black queer college men exist in often marginalize them from fully participating in and engaging with the entire campus community. Some researchers suggest that Black queer men (BQM) create counterspaces on-campus to contend with their marginalization as racial, gender, and sexual minorities. This study explores the collegiate experiences of BQM who forged community and strong interpersonal relationships through a peer-support group. Using intersectionality and queer theoretical frameworks, this study interrogates heteronormativity, cisnormativity, and racism that BQM experiences within postsecondary settings.
