Recent research shows that queer youth increasingly reject traditional sexual labelsin favour of more fluid identifications. Despite well-rehearsed debates around queeridentity politics under neoliberalism, there is a dearth of research examining howqueerness is understood and expressed in rural Australia. To address this knowledgegap, this article examines bisexual and queer young women’s understandings of sexuallabels in Tasmania, Australia. Drawing on Jose Esteban Muñoz’s disidentifications, weargue that while neoliberalism and homonormativity do influence rural queer women’sidentity politics, their lived experiences present specific challenges that draw attentionto the urban-centricity of homonormativity.
