Gentrification and Queer Erasure in Roanoke, Virginia

by Gregory on May 10, 2017

Southwest Virginia LGBTQ+ History Project volunteer and Roanoke College alum Rachel Barton has written a fabulous essay, accompanied by an interactive version of our downtown walking tour, reflecting on Roanoke’s queer history and the effects of gentrification on the erasure of queer spaces. This was published in NOTCHES, the leading peer-reviewed academic blog on the history of sexuality.
