Bettina Heinz, “Sounds Queer to Me”

It has become much too fashionable to be queer–as long as that queerness is nicely confined to a journal article, preferably in a special issue, or to a conference presentation.

Frankly, I see a lot more queerness at my local small-town America grocery store and fast-food chain, where local drag queens queer the workplace by working alongside straight, conservative, church-attending workers, or where gay, lesbian, and bisexual workers queer the workplace by coming out, innocuously, persistently, day after day, to customers and co-workers. (370, 371)
