What is Third Cultured?
Third Cultured is an international politics and LGBTQ+ culture newsletter written by yours truly, Kyle Borland. To be a “third culture individual” means “someone raised in a culture other than their parents' or the culture of their country of nationality.”
Being a gay damn Yankee raised on military bases in Europe and educated in the Deep South, I check the “Third Cultured” box several times over, and I am intimately familiar with “the Greater United States” or – as it’s less affectionately known – “the American Empire.”
My goal is to create a community that cares about foreign affairs while understanding the unique role Queer people play in the US and the world-at-large. I hope that’s you!
Here are some of my most-read posts to give you an idea of what I write about!
