Critical Articulations of Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation is a thought provoking text, which examines notions of intersectionality and identity. Dr. Howard masterfully curates a volume that brings together critical perspectives to challenge heteronormative discourses around identity, while centering the lived experiences of LGBTQI persons of color. This text provides much needed intellectual insight into the conversation of identity negotiation and communicative processes.

This thoughtful and provocative text uses personal narratives, self-reflexive analysis, and ethnographic inquiry to create a colorful tapestry highlighting the varied yet similar experiences of many within the LGBTQI community of color. It sets itself apart from other texts in that it covers a wide range of intersecting identities and provides a depth of understanding around sexual identity negotiation. I recommend this text for courses on identity negotiation, intercultural communication, LGBTQI studies and gender studies.
