Final Abstract for URS Program

Queer black men have had an incredible impact on society in many areas, from politics, fashion, and especially entertainment. However, they are often overlooked or disregarded. In recent years, there have been more who have gained the attention and recognition that they deserve. Jay Gaskin celebrates several influential queer black men in entertainment through a paper and presentation. And will discuss their backgrounds and why their representation matters for him and others within the LGBTQ community, particularly queer black men.
