In one of the first collections of scholarship at the intersection of LGBTQ studies and Appalachian studies, voices from the region;s valleys, hollers, mountains, and campuses blend personal stories with scholarly and creative examinations of living and surviving as queers in Appalachia. The essayists collected are academics, social workers, riot grrrl activists, teachers, students, practitioners, scholars of divinity, and boundary-crossers, all imagining how to make legible the unspeakable other of Appalachian queerness.

Focusing especially on disciplinary approaches from rhetoric and composition, the volume explores sexual identities in rural places, community and individual meaning-making among the Appalachian diaspora, the storytelling infrastructure of queer Appalachia, and the role of the metronormative in discourses of difference. Storytelling in Queer Appalachia affirms queer people, fights for visibility over erasure, seeks intersectional understanding, and imagines radically embodied queer selves through social media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Storytelling in Queer Appalachia offers us a beautifully disruptive way to rethink our understandings of a singular Appalachia--as a place, as a people, as an ideology. These insightful chapters approach queerness-in-place through a host of engaging lenses and frameworks."
--William P. Banks, coeditor of Approaches to Teaching LGBT Literature
