Queer Politics in Contemporary Turkey


Queer Politics in Contemporary Turkey By Paul Kramer
2021 | 176 Pages | ISBN: 152921484X | PDF | 17 MB
Drawing on the words and stories of queer Turkish activists, this book aims to unravel the complexities of queer lives in Turkey. In doing so, it challenges dominant conceptualizations of the queer Turkish experience within critical security discourses. The book argues that while queer Turks are subjected to insatiate forms of insecurity in their governance, opportunities for emancipatory resistance have emerged alongside these abuses. In doing so, the book identities the ways in which the state, the family, Turkish Islam and other socially-meditated processes and agencies can expose or protect queers from violence in the Turkish community.

Queer Wars


Queer Wars By Dennis Altman, Jonathan Symons
2016 | 120 Pages | ISBN: 0745698689 | PDF | 1 MB

Queer Wars explores the growing international polarization over sexual rights, and the creative responses from social movements and activists, some of whom face murder, imprisonment or rape because of their perceived sexuality or gender expression. This book asks why sexuality and gender identity have become so vexed an issue between and within nations, and how we can best advocate for change.
