About this book

This book explores changes and continuations in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer lives, identities and spatial practices in the 21st century from around the globe, using a range of methods to connect pasts, places and policies with contemporary times, linking individual and social presences (and absences) affectively and materially.

Reviews

“The book provides a platform for those stories often left untold or voices left unheard, shedding light on queer lives as everyday lives, performed within everyday spaces. … This publication is a timely reminder that there is a ‘persistent need to be attentive to inequalities across places and positions’.” (Valerie De Craene, INSEP – Journal of the International Network for Sexual Ethics & Politics, Vol. 4 (02), 2016)
'Drawing on original research, this elegant and accomplished book offers a nuanced account of queer lives, communities and politics. Focusing on cultures, places and experiences oft-neglected within mainstream gay scholarship, this collection significantly advances understandings of the relationship between sexual diversity, home-making and exclusionary processes of belonging within the contemporary world.' - Davina Cooper, Professor of Law & Political Theory, University of Kent, UK.​
