Professor McCune has written widely on issues relating to masculinity, particularly black masculinity, as well as queer studies, sexuality theory, critical race theory, performance studies and popular culture. ​

McCune's research examines and challenges dominant treatments of racialized gender and sexuality. Specifically, he develops critical theories of gender and sexuality, explores popular culture and the performance of iconography, and uses critical ethnography to understand black queer life.
