Exploring the relationship between class, sexuality and social exclusion, this is an original study of women who identify themselves as working-class and lesbian, highlighting the significance of class and sexuality in their biographies, everyday lives and identities. It provides insight into the experiences of self-identified working-class lesbians and offers a timely critique of queer theory and an empirical interrogation of the embodied, spatial and material intersection of class and sexuality.
YVETTE TAYLOR is Lecturer in Sociology, School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, University of Newcastle, UK where she teaches on the intersection between class, gender and sexuality.
