Revisiting the Ghetto: How the Meanings of Gay Districts Are Shaped By the Meanings of the City.

This paper explores how LGBT consumers’ understandings of their local LGBT district are negotiated alongside their understandings of the broader urban context. The data include 31 in-depth interviews. This paper contributes to the LGBT literature, but also broader academic discussions about the meaning of place and space in consumer lives.
