Description

Global Homophobia: States, Movements, and the Politics of Oppression

While homophobia is commonly characterized as individual and personal prejudice, this book explores homophobia as a transnational political phenomenon. Contributors theorize homophobia as a distinct configuration of repressive state-sponsored policies and practices with their own causes, explanations, and effects on how sexualities are understood and experienced in a range of national contexts. The essays include a broad range of geographic cases, including France, Ecuador, Iran, Lebanon, Poland, Singapore, and the United States.

Meredith Weiss, Ph.D. is a Professor at SUNY Albany in their Department of Political Science and the Co-Creator of Global Homophobia: States, Movements, and the Politics of Oppression.
