Experiences of being a queer Black male: Identity politics, education, and work

Devin D. Moss


The intersectional experiences of queer Black males have not been widely documented in education and the work force. Using an integrative review framework, I explore the experiences of queer Black men. The first portion of the paper draws on identity development to illustrate the multidimensional identity of queer Black men and how their identities are often oppressed within different communities within society. The second portion of the paper explores how these two identities encounter educational and work environments. What is evident is that there is a need for intersecting policies that are equally multidimensional in ending systematic racism and homophobia in school and work.
