Category: Lectures & Meetings


In this talk, I examine texts that open us up to Black gay men’s erotic lives that are inundated with the specter of transgressive genders. These appearances of trans genders are the drag queen, the black trans femme, and black cisgender women. I use a trans* optic as a tool to help in the work of listening, understanding, and reading as both intellectual and political practices.

As student of stars and struggle, love and earth, peace and moon, language and humans and history, K. Marshall Green is currently Assistant Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality at Williams College. Green’s scholarship is uniquely vested in querying forms of self-representation and communal political mobilization by Black LGBT persons in the urban context, combining art and activism with research on race, gender, and sexuality in Black LGBT communities and cultural production.

Organized by Gender & Sexuality Studies and African American Studies.
