Praise for Working-Class Queers: Time, Place and Politics

'A much needed and timely deep forensic dive into the underrepresentation of working class queers within our queer structures and concepts' 
Juno Roche, writer

'This work holds rich and deep insights into lived experience, the power lines of learning within institutions, how people act on and transform each other in community. Yvette’s book opens doors and transforms fault lines. It will be beneficial to thinkers, feelers and doers for years to come.'
Sarah Schulman, author of 'Let the Record Show: A Political History of ACT UP New York' (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2021)

'Building on more than two decades of care-ful, engaged research with classed LGBT+ communities, Working-Class Queers makes major intellectual and ethical contributions to queer feminist methods. This book is a must-read for thinkers asking about the how of queer and lesbian studies, not least in that it reflects intimate methods of sharing negotiated by a scholar working in troubled and hopeful times alike.' 
Matt Brim, Professor of queer studies at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York
