Queering Gay and Lesbian Studies is a broadly interdisciplinary study that considers a key dilemma in gay and lesbian studies through the prism of identity and its discontents the field studies has modeled itself on ethnic studies programs perhaps to be intelligible to the university community but certainly because the ethnic studies route to programs is well established Since this model requires a stable and identifiable community gay and lesbian studies have emphasized stable and knowable identities The problem of course is that sexuality is neither stable tidy nor developmental With the advent of queer theory there are now other perspectives available that frequently find themselves at odds with traditional gay and lesbian studies
