Tune into OUTCastMaine on Monday, February 28 to hear collective members Alex Thompson and Steve Bull welcome Dr. Theo Greene, Professor of Sociology at Bowdoin College, as they began discussions in the first of a series entitled: The Intersection of the African American & Queer Experience.
Alex & Theo will discuss their shared experiences as African American men navigating unique challenges within the Queer community as Steve gives a historical political perspective on the convergences of two communities.
This series will explore such hard hitting topics like racism within Queer communities, our cultural sexualization of the black body, the rise & fall of Critical Race Theory and so much more. In conjunction with Theo’s book “Not in MY Gayborhood: Gay Neighborhoods and the Rise of the Vicarious Citizen”, one broadcast will examine the national phenomenon of gentrification of African American neighborhoods often by LGBT+ persons. This series is expected to be filled with insight and humor for all. DON’T MISS IT!
Theo Greene is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Bowdoin College. His research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of sexuality, urbanism, and culture. His research broadly uses sexual communities to understand how urban redevelopment shape and reconfigure how individuals conceptualize, identify to, and participate in local communities.
His current book project, entitled Not in MY Gayborhood: Gay Neighborhoods and the Rise of the Vicarious Citizen (under contract with Columbia University Press) explores the persistence of iconic gay neighborhoods in Washington, DC through ephemeral acts of placemaking by nonresidential community actors (vicarious citizens).
In addition to his research and teaching, Greene also serves on the boards for the Equality Community Center and the Frannie Peabody Center, as well as The Corner, The Whitman-Walker Health Cultural Center.
