Description

"Where My Girls At?" Black Queer Women and the Worlds They Make in DC


Typically discussions around queer women's social lives are talked about in terms of loss and Black queer folks, women especially, are characterized as "invisible" as if their social worlds were never there or are "disappearing" from the urban landscape. However, my findings, based on 3 years of ethnographic research, suggest a highly vibrant, rich and diverse "Scene" for Black queer women in and around Washington, D.C. I'll share bits about my work, and highlight some of the ways that Black queer women have historically navigated within the context of overlapping forms of oppression in the U.S. to "make space out of no space."
