About the Edition

This thesis investigates the formation of black Canadian queer youth identity by drawing on narratives of five self-identified black queer youth, who are members of the Black Queer Youth initiative (BQY) a social and recreational group, funded and housed by the queer youth organization Supporting Our Youth (SOY). I examine what black queer youth identity means to BQY members and how they strategize and negotiate their multiple identities within the context of coming out and sites of socialization such as: families, faiths, schools and the internet. I also explore how the social space of BQY provides a context for identity development of it members. I suggest the complex and shifting positions which black queer youth occupy provides us with a way of thinking about how they make sense of their identities.

Privilege is not visible to its holder; it is merely there, a part of the world, a way of life, simply the way things are. Others have a lack, an absence, a deficiency. Privilege exists when one group has something of value that is denied to others simply because of group membership and not based on what a person or group has done or failed to.

In our society, it is still common for girls to be discouraged from math and science courses based on their gender. But for girls who are in low-income school districts, social class then compounds the effects of gender even more so because schools in these districts are likely to have poorly equipped labs and fewer certified teachers-thus making it harder for these girls to compete successfully. The National Network of Runaway and Youth Services estimates that anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 million lesbian, gay, and bisexual kids in the US run away from home or are thrown out of their homes annually. 28% of gay and lesbian kids drop out of school annually; that's more than three times the .
