(p.159) Outro
Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music

Nadine Hubbs

University of California Press

My concluding “Outro” section considers treatments of LGBTQ themes in recent country songs and their relations to rural, as well as working-class, social codes. Current research on rural sociality describes it in terms resembling those of working-class sociality—terms that resonate with messages that recur frequently in country music. All of this points to practices of social and sexual tolerance different from—but no less valid than—middle-class recognition politics. My closing underscores the intellectual, moral, and political stakes of recognizing perspectives, values, and tastes beyond those of the dominant culture of the middle class.

Keywords:   LGBTQ, anti-homophobic, rural, social codes, tolerance, recognition politics, moral, values, stakes, dominant culture
