It’s Thick Here

It’s Thick Here

Race, Gender, and Sexuality in the South

1 (p.21) It’s Thick Here
Black. Queer. Southern. Women.

E. Patrick Johnson

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter is primarily focused on how Black, queer, Southern women experience and navigate intersecting oppressions throughout their lives. Johnson pushes past the “holy trinity” of structural oppression—race, class, and gender—to consider how sexuality and region complicate this theoretical formation. In this section, the narrators shed light on the various ways that they have responded to the confluence of these forces, from using drugs and alcohol to having children to attending college.

Keywords:   racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, survival
