About the Book

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.
