Dadland Maye is a Ph.D. student in the English Program at the CUNY Graduate Center. His dissertation, “The Making of a Queer Caribbean Consciousness: The Influence of LGBTQ Activism on Anglophone Caribbean Literature,” examines the history of LGBTQ activism in the English Caribbean from the 1970s to the present. He accomplishes this with a simultaneous analysis of literature and reggae-dancehall culture to determine how artistic forms engage the history of queer civil rights in the region. His study contributes to the field of queer theory and LGBTQ activism in the Caribbean.
