Stories of Antiracist Gay/Lesbian Gender Alliance: Articulating Intersectional Solidarity in the 1980s. By: Broad, K. 2024. Gender & Society. Vol. 38 Issue 1, p89-113.

This article shows how in the early 1980s, Black and White Men Together (BWMT), an interracial group of antiracist gay men, constructed relations of connection with antiracist feminist lesbians of color. My analysis details how BWMT engaged in storytelling through newsletters, reporting their creation of relations of connection with Black, “Third World,” antiracist lesbians and constructing these relations as a multidimensional gender alliance involving important processes of creating networks of reciprocal solidarity, forging political alignment, and creating intentional spaces of camaraderie to sustain intersectional solidarity. This research substantively expands our understanding of U.S. LGBTQ+ intersectional movement(s) activism with the concept of multidimensional gender alliance and analytically expands our understandings of intersectional solidarity. Plain Language Summary: Stories of Solidarity between Antiracist Gay Men and Feminist Lesbians of Color Often sociological research about social movements, including the U.S. LGBTQ+ movement, has focused on white mainstream organizations. Much of LGBTQ+ that research characterizes the organizing of gay men and lesbians as done separately. In this article, I offer an example of a group of antiracist gay men who created relations of connection to feminist lesbians of color. This research advances understanding of early intersectional movements and strategies used to create and maintain unique forms of solidarity.
