(p.109) “Colored” Is the New Queer

Andreana Clay

University of North Carolina Press

Andreana Clay and a small group of queer faculty of color reflect on E. Patrick's Johnson's experiences at Amherst College, recounted in his essay ""In the Merry Old Land of Oz: Rac(e)ing, Quee(r)ing the Academy,"" as they discuss how things have and haven't changed for LGBTQ faculty around the country. In addition to the challenges all faculty of color face, this essay shows the struggles unique to queer faculty, from coming out in the classroom, to being viewed as super minorities, to working in departments all too willing to ignore the invisible labor they do as they work to build communities in and out of academia. The participants in this discussion also reflect on how working class roots shape their experience in higher ed.
