Flaming? the Peculiar Theopolitics of Fire and Desire in Black Male Gospel Performance by Alisha Lola JonesFlaming?: The Peculiar Theo-Politics of Fire and Desire in Black Male Gospel Performance examines the rituals and social interactions of African American men who use gospel music making as a means of worshiping God and performing gendered identities. Prompted by the popular term "flaming(g)" that is used to identify over-the-top or peculiar performance of identity, Flaming? argues that these men wield and interweave a variety of multivalent aural-visual cues, including vocal style, gesture, attire, and homiletics, to position themselves along a spectrum of gender identities.
