Bio/Research

Patrick McGrady, Ph.D., research interests surround social inequalities, with a focus on the sociology of race and education, as well as the sociology of gender, sexuality, and the body. McGrady examined racial mismatch in high school classrooms and how racial stereotyping operates through white teachers’ evaluations of their students. McGradys's dissertation is mixed methods study of how gay men simultaneously experience weight and sexual orientation stigmas. To examine resistance against stigma, I studied the bear subculture. The bears are a group of gay men who reject narrow stereotypes of gay male beauty and effeminacy and idealize bigger, hirsute bodies and a “regular guy” masculinity.
