Abstract: While there has been an explosion of research on the school experiences of LGBTQ students and the immigrant second generation, respectively, few studies have centered the experiences of second-generation youth who also happen to be queer. In this talk, I present findings from my comparative research on Latino and Filipino American queer male youth in Los Angeles. I demonstrate how an empirical deep dive into the educational lives of queer male youth reveals how schools are racialized, gendered, and heteronormative. I will close by discussing how research on students with intersectional identities holds important implications for theories of educational inequality, educational practice, and community engagement, especially as it relates to immigrant communities.
