Produktbeskrivning

What does recognition mean for people whose sexuality has for a long time been criminalised?
In recent years, the status of queer sexuality in India has been the focus of legal and social contestations. This thesis analyses the everyday negotiations of young queer people living in Delhi. Focusing on a period of time where same-sex sexualities had been officially recognised for the first time, this thesis raises questions about how recognition, sexuality, and subjectivity are lived and experienced in practice in a period characterised simultaneously by high hopes and pervading insecurity.
