Queer erasure

Queer erasure is a heteronormative cultural practice where queer people are erased from cultural narratives.[1][2][3] Queer erasure (inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and asexual erasure) is used in both scholarly and popular media texts when referring to issues of visibility and exclusion, such as in the case of AIDS research that does not include lesbian populations.[4][5][6] Historian Gregory Rosenthal refers to queer erasure in describing the exclusion of LGBTQ histories from public history that can occur in urban contexts via gentrification.[7]
