(p.1) Introduction
Queering the Redneck Riviera

Jerry T. Watkins III

University Press of Florida

This chapter lays the foundations for the book’s argument about the intersections of capitalism, tourism, sexuality, and queer identity. It begins by explaining “The Sunshine State” and proceeds through an explanation of key terms and concepts such as “queer” and “redneck.” The chapter situates the work in broader LGBTQ scholarship and establishes it as a corrective to scholarship on the Redneck Riviera. It includes explanations of the source material and its uses, as well as the work’s treatment of proper names. It ends by establishing the temporal and identity parameters for the remaining chapters in order to orient the reader.

Keywords:   LGBTQ scholarship, Redneck Riviera, Capitalism, Tourism, Sexuality, Queer Identity
