This label properly described the assertive nature of a “gay alliance,’’ as opposed to one in which a gay “identity’’ was submerged in the race-, class-, and “other-ly’’ centered urban movements. The establishment of a gay liberation movement led primarily by white males in the large cities was itself challenged, first by womenidentified women3 and then by African Americans, Latinos, and other people of color. “Identity’’ immediately lost its universalist assertion within sexual identity, especially its implied claim that all lesbians and all “gay’’ men of color fit easily into a single “gay’’ identity.
In voting behavior, researchers saw identities as “predictors’’ of voting behavior. Race, gender, religious afﬁliation, geographic afﬁnity, and the like all are vessels of accumulated experiences, vocabulary, assumptions, memories, and fears that influence the way a person votes. In The American Voter, for example, Campbell, Converse, Miller, and Stokes wrote about party “identiﬁcation,’’ although they were less interested in party identiﬁcation itself than in its underlying structures, development, and deviation across time.
As Michel Maffesoli notes: identity, sexual identity, and political behavior The notion of a sexual identity is too narrow, for the ego is constituted of at least a plurality of personalities, if not an inﬁnity. 24 The proliferation of contemporary social forms as bases for political identity and as linkages for political mobilization has provided more choices and created multiple arenas of political action. But it also means multiple identities. What we might call identity multiplexing is the layering and ranking by individuals of their different identities in different arenas.
