"Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You": Self-Disclosure and Lesbian and Gay Identity in the ESL Writing Classroom
Cummings, Martha Clark
Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), v28 n1 p71-89 2009
A lesbian teacher, recently returned from four years in Japan and teaching an intermediate ESL class in a public community college in New York City, struggles with addressing the issue of her own sexual orientation while using a novel with a protagonist who is questioning his sexual identity. The evolution of gay/lesbian and/or queer theory mirrors the progress of the writer's life as she confronts her own internalized homophobia and the heteronormativity of her culture.
