This volume explore some uncomfortable territories – spaces where desires and practices remain ‘taboo’, pathologised or invisible. Unveiled are premises under which citizenship can be constructed, and the ways that persons can be made valid or invalid as cultural artefacts. This book speaks loudly to our cultural and collective identities. A number of crucial debates that surround relationships between and among gender, sexuality and identity within a global context are discussed across an eclectic array of disciplines, professions and vocations. The result challenges perspectives and provides new and innovative possibilities for future development. The authors’ international perspectives illuminate practices that continue to discriminate and marginalize those identities, behaviours and desires that are seen to sit outside hegemonic cultural norms.
