The claim that ?LGBT rights are human rights? encounters fierce opposition in many parts of the world, as governments and religious leaders have used resistance to ?LGBT rights? to cast themselves as defenders of traditional values against neo-colonial interference and western decadence.

Queer Wars explores the growing international polarization over sexual rights, and the creative responses from social movements and activists, some of whom face murder, imprisonment or rape because of their perceived sexuality or gender expression.

This book asks why sexuality and gender identity have become so vexed an issue between and within nations, and how we can best advocate for change.
