This project explores intersections of class, gender and race in the negotiation of same-sex rights in the UK and US

The project, 'Just cause or impediment? Costs of civic acceptance' probes at the material and subjective costs, consequences and constructions of 'intersectional citizenship' in changing times.

Moments of US-UK sexual citizenship are these in terms of LGBT campaigning groups' actions, institutional reactions and broader public relations. They are evident in the course of claiming and lamenting citizenship, community and diversity.

In celebrating new queer presences it argues the absence of 'others' must also be considered.

The project is carried out on behalf of LSBU's Families and Social Capital Research Group.To find out more about this work, search our People Finder for academics researching in this area.
