Queer Migrations: Sexuality, U.S. Citizenship, and Border Crossings

Type de ressource: 

Immigration from Latin America and Asia has influenced every aspect of social, political, economic, and cultural life in the United States over the past quarter century. However, little attention has been paid to queer immigrants of color. 

Focusing particularly on migration from Mexico, Cuba, El Salvador, and the Philippines, Queer Migrations brings together scholars of immigration, citizenship, sexuality, race, and ethnicity to provide analyses of the norms, institutions, and discourses that affect queer immigrants of color, also providing ethnographic studies of how these newcomers have transformed established immigrant communities in Miami, San Francisco, and New York.
