Overview

Contributions from 10 US scholars of immigration, citizenship, sexuality, race, and ethnicity analyze the norms, institutions, and discourses that affect queer immigrants of color, providing ethnographic studies of how these newcomers have affected established immigrant communities in Miami, San Francisco, and New York. The essays were discussed and developed in conjunction with two 2002 conferences: "Sexuality, Migration, and the Contested Boundaries of US Citizenship," held at Bowling Green State U., and "On the Line: Gender, Sexuality, and Human Rights in the Americas," held at the U. of California, Santa Cruz.
