Eric Grollman, a PhD candidate in Sociology at Indiana University recommends reading Amy C. Wilkins’ Wannabes, Goths, and Christians: The Boundaries of Sex, Style, and Status

Wannabes, Goths, and Christians is an interesting contribution to understanding how race, ethnicity, social class, gender, and sexuality intersect – in this case, how the intersections among race, ethnicity, gender, and social class are reflected in sexuality.  It’s a fun and insightful peek into the lives, experiences, and concerns of young people of different social backgrounds.”

-Eric Grollman

Erick describes his own research as aiming “to highlight the role sexual identity plays in individuals’ lives and worldviews outside of the bedroom – that is, how one’s sexual identity shapes one’s experiences, values, and attitudes”.
