I am interested in issues of diversity among fans of the Womens' National Basketball Association (WNBA). Where can I find information about gender, race, and sexuality as it relates to the make-up of fans of the WNBA?
There are several databases you can search to find articles about the WNBA and its fans.
Searching in the general database Academic Search Premier, you can use "wnba" as the search term, then Narrow Results to Academic Journals (on the left side)-- that will lead to some interesting articles about gender, race, and sexuality as it relates to WNBA fans.
