    Content: " CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE GUARDIAN 'S and FINANCIAL TIMES ' BOOKS OF 2020'In intimate, often tender prose, Gevisser brings to live the complex movement for <em class="albert-highlight">queer</em> civil rights and the many people on whom it bears.' Colm Toibin, Guardian'Powerful... meticulously researched' Andrew McMillan, Observer Book of the Week Six years in the making, The Pink Line follows protagonists from nine countries all over the globe to tell the story of how LGBTQ+ Rights became one of the world's new human rights frontiers in the second decade of the twenty-first century. From <em class="albert-highlight">refugees</em> in South Africa to activists in Egypt, transgender women in Russia and transitioning teens in the American Mid-West, The Pink Line folds intimate and deeply affecting stories of individuals, families and communities into a definitive account of how the world has changed, so dramatically, in just a decade. And in doing so he reveals a troubling new equation that has come in to play: while same-sex marriage and gender transition are now celebrated in some parts of the world, laws to criminalise homosexuality and gender non-conformity have been strengthened in others. In a work of great scope and wonderful storytelling, this is the groundbreaking, definitive account of how issues of sexuality and gender identity divide and unite the world today. "
    Content: Biographisches: "Mark Gevisser's previous books include the award-winning A Legacy of Liberation: Thabo Mbeki and the Future of South Africa's Dream , and Lost and Found in Johannesburg: A Memoir .

    Content: Approached as a wellspring of cultural authenticity and historical exceptionality, New Orleans appears in opposition to a nation perpetually driven by progress. 'Remaking New Orleans' shows how this narrative is rooted in a romantic cultural tradition, continuously repackaged through the twin engines of tourism and economic development, and supported by research that has isolated the city from comparison and left unquestioned its entrenched inequality. Working against this feedback loop, the contributors place New Orleans at the forefront of national patterns of urban planning, place-branding, structural inequality, and racialization. Nontraditional sites like professional wrestling matches, middle-class black suburbs, and Vietnamese gardens take precedence over cliched renderings of Creole cuisine, voodoo queens, and hot jazz. Covering the city's founding through its present and highlighting changing political and social formations, this volume remakes New Orleans as a rich site for understanding the quintessential concerns of American cities

    Series Statement: Global queer politics
    Content: This book tracks the conceptual journeying of the term ?transgender? from the Global North - where it originated - along with the physical embodied journeying of transgender asylum seekers from countries within Africa to South Africa and considers the interrelationships between the two. The term 'transgender' transforms as it travels, taking on meaning in relation to bodies, national homes, institutional frameworks and imaginaries. This study centres on the experiences and narratives of people that can be usefully termed 'gender <em class="albert-highlight">refugees</em>', gathered through a series of life story interviews. It is the argument of this book that the departures, border crossings, arrivals and perceptions of South Africa for gender <em class="albert-highlight">refugees</em> have been both enabled and constrained by the contested meanings and politics of this emergence of transgender. This book explores, through these narratives, the radical constitutional-legal possibilities for 'transgender' in South Africa, the dissonances between the possibilities of constitutional law, and the pervasive politics/logic of binary ?sex/gender? within South African society. In doing so, this book enriches the emergent field of Transgender Studies and challenges some of the current dominant theoretical and political perceptions of 'transgender'. It offers complex narratives from the African continent regarding sex, gender, sexuality and notions of home concerning particular geo-politically situated bodies

    Content: "Belgium was the second country in the world to introduce same-sex marriage. It has an elaborate legal system for protecting the rights of LGBT individuals in general and LGBT asylum seekers in particular. At the same time, since 2015 the country has become known as the 'jihadi centre of Europe' and criticized for its 'homonationalism' where some <em class="albert-highlight">queer</em> subjects - such as ethnic, racial and religious minorities, or those with a migrant background - are excluded from the dominant discourse on LGBT rights. <em class="albert-highlight">Queer</em> Muslims living in the country exist in this complex context and their identities are often disregarded as implausible. This book foregrounds the lived experiences of <em class="albert-highlight">queer</em> Muslims who migrated to Belgium because of their sexuality and <em class="albert-highlight">queer</em> Muslims who are the children of economic migrants. Based on extensive fieldwork, Wim Peumans examines how these Muslims negotiate silence and disclosure around their sexuality and understand their religious beliefs. He also explores how the sexual identity of <em class="albert-highlight">queer</em> Muslims changes within a context of transnational migration. In focusing on people with different migration histories and ethnic backgrounds, this book challenges the heteronormativity of Migration Studies and reveals the interrelated issues involved in migration, sexuality and religion. The research will be valuable for those working on immigration, <em class="albert-highlight">refugees</em>, LGBT issues, public policy and contemporary Muslim studies."--Bloomsbury Publishing

    Content: We are women, we are men. We are <em class="albert-highlight">refugees</em>, people with disabilities, and <em class="albert-highlight">queers</em>. We belong to social categories and they frame our actions, self-understanding, and opportunities. But what are social categories? How are they constructed? This text addresses these questions and offers a bold, new theory of social categories.
