ACC Deputy Director Andrew Tucker has edited a special issue of Urban Forum under the banner of African Urban Sexualities after Queer Visibilities.
This issue brings together emergent thought on the topic of African urban sexualities, and specifically non-heteronormative sexualities. It therefore also implicitly, and sometimes explicitly, asks the question: What does it mean—and why is it important—to study or examine African urban sexualities (and especially non-heteronormative sexualities) today?
This open access issue features nine articles from authors Gustav Visser, Zuziwe Khuzwayo, John Marnell, Xavier Livermon, Mark Gevisser, Liza Rose Cirolia and Andrea Pollio, and the late Eddie Ombagi.
