The Other Countries Collective and Black Gay Mourning
This chapter focuses on the history and cultural production of Other Countries Collective, an NYC-based writers’ group. It argues that the devastating impact of AIDS in black gay communities in New York City in the late 1980s and early 1990s produced a historically and culturally specific form of mourning that was animated by a desire for collectivity and self-determination. It theorizes black gay mourning as a political emotion that contests the erasure of AIDS from public discourse.
