This book demonstrates the crucial contributions that lesbian/gay anthropology can offer contemporary debates over sexuality and justice."

It is a timely and fascinating read that demonstrates, once again, the centrality of lesbian/gay studies in anthropology to the field at large and to the wider academy."
