9780472051960: Butch Queens Up in Pumps: Gender, Performance, and Ballroom Culture in Detroit (Triangulations: Lesbian/Gay/Queer Theater/Drama/Performance)

Butch Queens Up in Pumps examines Ballroom culture, in which inner-city LGBT individuals dress, dance, and vogue to compete for prizes and trophies. Participants are affiliated with a house, an alternative family structure typically named after haute couture designers and providing support to this diverse community. Marlon M. Bailey’s rich first-person performance ethnography of the Ballroom scene in Detroit examines Ballroom as a queer cultural formation that upsets dominant notions of gender, sexuality, kinship, and community.

About the Author:

Marlon M. Bailey is Associate Professor of Gender Studies and American Studies at Indiana University.

Review:

"This study of house/ball culture also makes for yet another example of the positive impact of liberation psychologies at work among people attempting to thrive and survive amid systemic marginalization and dismissal by outgroup members in the wider society."
PsycCRITIQUES (Michele K. Lewis PsycCRITIQUES)

"Butch Queens Up in Pumps meticulously details how racism, poverty, homophobia and AIDS still challenge the black lgbt community and how Ballroom culture in Detroit provides a space of resistance, yet as a combination of ethnography and memoir, the book reads personally and emotionally in a way that few academic studies achieve."
Lambda Literary Review (Chase Dimock Lambda Literary 2014-02-22)

 Finalist, Lambda Literary Award in LGBT Studies, 2014 (Lambda Literary Award)

Winner, Alan Bray Memorial Book Prize, 2015 (Alan Bray Memorial Book Prize)

Descrizione libro The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book provides the first comprehensive examination of the urban phenomenon known as Ballroom culture that first gained notoriety in the documentary Paris Is Burning in 1990. Butch Queens Up in Pumps uniquely explores the ways in which Black LGBT people in Detroit use performance and other cultural practices-such as alternative identity, kinship, and community formations-to contend with or alter the conditions in which they live. Butch Queens Up in Pumps is as much an examination of Black queer cultural formations as it is an ethnographic account of Ballroom culture in Detroit. Marlon M. Bailey s rare perspective as both participant and observer in the Ballroom scene makes for compelling reading and lends his analysis an uncommon immediacy and authenticity, producing a remarkable performance ethnography that delves deeply into this subcultural phenomenon. The book will appeal to scholars and students across a wide range of disciplines, including African American studies, gender and sexuality studies, performance studies, dance, and anthropology, and to anyone interested in the politics, prevention, and activism surrounding HIV/AIDS.
