Lost Landscapes and the Spatial Contextualization of Queerness

Gordon Brent Ingram

Abstract


Lesbian, gay, and bisexual1 habitation of outdoor and indoor environments has become a major topic in queer2 theory and spatial issues3 have come to represent new frontiers in the politics of our various communities. Homophobia, violence, and isolation in outdoor spaces arc coming to be framed as environmental problems. A host of possibilities for new alliances around queer space is emerging. But it is first necessary to ask a number of questions before specific interventions in the condition of outdoor areas can better define and strengthen our communities and improve our lives.
