Back again: English applicant

Hey all! So I'm back again (used to frequent this comm when I applied year before last). Finishing second year of English MA this year and applying to PhD programs this applicant season. My question to any of you who may know/be interested: Schools with strong focuses in queer theory and sexuality studies? I do queer space and rural space, especially as it relates to both American Indian studies and Appalachian studies. I'm really looking for queer theory/sexuality-strong programs in general, in English, American studies, gender/women's studies, or any other such interdisciplinary field. Suggestions of schools to look up would be excellent. Here's my preliminary list thus far (all English unless indicated):

University of Minnesota
University of Washington
University of Indiana (both English and Gender studies)
Illinois Urbana-Champaign
NYU American studies
University of Arizona

I feel like I kind of don't know where to look - most of these schools have been recommended by advisors, but I'd like to apply to around 15. I don't know much at all about finding women's studies and gender studies programs either, which may be where to look but it's out of my field and I don't really know who to ask... Help?

Well, I study queer theory, and I definitely love it here at CUNY. :D
