“To Queerly Go: Queer Studies, Space Histories, and Space Futures” by Eleanor S. Armstrong and Lisa Ruth Rand
Published in Quest Volume: 31 #1 (2024)

Abstract

The history of spaceflight is missing something. Despite strides towards LGBTQ+ inclusion and representation in broader cultural contexts, to date there haven’t been any openly queer active-duty astronauts—a startling absence that much of space history scholarship both reflects and reifies. Taking as a point of departure the controversial outing of astronauts in the second decade of the 21st century, this essay reflects on sexuality in space culture since 2000. From there, we bring into focus a larger treatment of queer themes within the histories of spaceflight, asking what may come next for queer space futures.
