Thickening language and sexuality studies
Multilingualism, race/ethnicity, and queerness
In this contribution to the special issue of the Journal of Language and Sexuality celebrating its 10th anniversary, I reflect on several key articles in the journal that related to my work in language and sexuality with queer, Latinx and bi/multilingual individuals and organizations, survey the field of language and sexuality today from my vantage point, and propose several directions for the future of language and sexuality studies, namely: to engage multilingualism, to question our ideologies as researchers, to grapple more deeply with intersectionality through ethnography, and to consider age more seriously.
