Through focusing on the sexual politics that have emerged out of post-apartheid South Africa, Spurlin investigates textual and cultural representations of same-sex desire outside of the Euroamerican axes of queer culture and politics, and considers the ways in which queer cultural productions in southern Africa both intersect with and resist these.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Substantially original in content and approach.' - Alan Sinfield, Sussex University

'Spurlin makes a compelling case for the need to queer postcolonial theory and decolonize queer theory, arguing cogently that only these moves can enable a fuller understanding of non-heteronormative sexualities in Africa.' - Ruth Vanita, author of Love's Rite: Same-Sex Marriage in India and the West
