Moored to Brown, the performance of Brown sexualities is an event, method, and critique of modern subjectivity. The performance of Brown sexualities has had and continues to have a prominent if sometimes ephemeral role in the development of performance studies in communication.

Brown sexualities spans multiple gender and sexual positionalities as it also spans from the Communication field and into interdisciplinary sources. The performance of Brown sexualities is best understood through its aesthetic enactments of the stage and the everyday.
