Queer and Trans Migrations

Dynamics of Illegalization, Detention, and Deportation

Centering the experiences of LGBTQ migrants and communities resisting

More than a quarter of a million LGBTQ-identified migrants in the United States lack documentation and constantly risk detention and deportation. LGBTQ migrants around the world endure similarly precarious situations. Eithne Luibhéid and Karma R. Chávez’s edited collection provides a first-of-its-kind look at LGBTQ migrants and communities. The academics, activists, and artists in the volume center illegalization, detention, and deportation in national and transnational contexts, and examine how migrants and allies negotiate, resist, refuse, and critique these processes. The works contribute to the fields of gender and sexuality studies, critical race and ethnic studies, borders and migration studies, and decolonial studies.

Bridging voices and works from inside and outside of the academy, and international in scope, Queer and Trans Migrations illuminates new perspectives in the field of queer and trans migration studies.

"An extraordinarily important volume bringing together activists, artists, and academics, Queer and Trans Migrations models the wide range of approaches that can help us understand and challenge the heteronormative frameworks, settler-colonialist politics, and racialized logics affecting migration, detention, and deportation."--Erica Rand, author of The Ellis Island Snow Globe
