Bringing together a variety of contemporary writers and filmmakers of Muslim heritage engaged in vindicating same-sex desire, the book approaches queer Muslims in the diaspora as figures forced to negotiate their identities according to the expectations of the West and of their migrant Muslim communities.

    This makes for a great critical intervention into an underexamined subject of queer muslim diasporic cultural production in the West. Though Carbajal acknowledges that their study is partial, I think this is a significant contribution to a nascent field. Their critical analysis covers a diverse set of artistic work both in film and literature, albeit not dance and performing arts, that aims to challenge monolithic representations of Islam and Muslims. I think this will be a very useful book for This makes for a great critical intervention into an underexamined subject of queer muslim diasporic cultural production in the West.

Their critical analysis covers a diverse set of artistic work both in film and literature, albeit not dance and performing arts, that aims to challenge monolithic representations of Islam and Muslims. I think this will be a very useful book for academics and general readers interested in postcolonialism, diaspora, queerness and contemporary muslim identities. It demonstrates how analytical frameworks such as homonationalism, assemblage theory and queer (dis)orientations can shed light on a micropolitics of dissent from dominant hegemonies.
