Nightlife can have a special meaning for Black and/or queer people, as well as for others who are marginalized in the daylight hours. Nightlife can be a space of relief, of healing, of joy, of community. It can be a time to get free. It is also a space subject to policing and to exploitation, a margin continually being displaced from one edge of the city to the next. It can become an object of fascination and tourism for people other than those who make it and need it. We will look at historical and contemporary examples from the perspective of several disciplines, but centering the way Black, queer and/or trans people create and document nightlife for themselves.
