Abstract

Abstract:

This article looks back on the recent history of Rosie O'Donnell's gay family cruise company in order to illustrate how consumption practices bolstered lesbian and gay claims on citizenship during the post-9/11 era. Through an analysis of the production of lesbian and gay parents as consumer citizens, I contribute to the body of transnational feminist and queer cultural studies scholarship dealing with tourism, sexuality, and national identity, and I provide new insights into understanding homo-sexuality's collusions with U.S. nationalism at the turn of the twenty-first century.
