Love and Money, Queerness and Class

(p.1) Introduction
Love and Money

Lisa Henderson

NYU Press

This introductory chapter discusses the link between sexuality and social class to reinvigorate accountability to class hierarchy inside and outside of queerness. It situates questions about queerness and class to commercial, subcultural, and everyday contexts to ask about cultural forms and processes, and also to think about the movement of cultural categories and citizens within and across sociocultural zones. This process is referred to as“relay” to clarify the mobile and uneven character of cultural production over time, space, and group, where outcomes are neither as concrete as objects nor as entrenched as systems and industries. Through fieldwork and criticism, the chapter and the entire text untangles the threads of thought, action, and relation over space and time. The goal of such methods is to gauge the cultural coordinates of power such as wealth, policy, and control.

Keywords:   sexuality, social class, accountability, class hierarchy, queerness, commercial, subcultural, relay, cultural production, cultural coordinates of power
