Scale Jumping from the Myth of Neighborhood Liberation

I work across scales to examine the relationship between the myth of urban neighborhood liberation and the myth of the ever-unwelcoming, "backward" rural US South. Drawing on a 15-year media analysis, multi-generational interviews with lesbians and queers, and organizational records and periodicals from LGBTQ archives, I situate the work on lesbian-queer place-making in conversation with the scholarship around homonationalism, I present the idea of cis-metronormativity. Cis-metronormativity requires a regional and multiscalar study across the US to articulare the political and economic practices that assert urban cosmopolitanism and civilization, which therefore reify the racist, settler, and capitalist city.
