Research Initiative:

Mignon Moore, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Columbia University, will author a book that examines the identities of black and Latina lesbian women, looking at their attitudes about relationships, family formation, sexuality, and parenting. Based on two years of interviews, surveys, and participant observations in social environments, Moore argues that race, ethnicity, and cultural experience converge to form an identity and outlook on relationships for lesbian women of color that is distinct from both heterosexual minority women and white lesbians.
