ALMN is in the final stages of compiling an edited collection dedicated to LGBTIQ+ migration on, from and to the African continent.
Set to be the first publication of its kind, the collection features fifteen original contributions that investigate LGBTIQ+ migration from various geographical, socio-cultural and disciplinary perspectives. The collection interrogates what it means to do research with, on and perhaps for LGBTIQ+ migrants, particularly at a time when global contestations around human rights have initiated a new ‘scramble for Africa’ – this time for evidence of homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and other markers of ‘savagery’. In line with ALMN’s objectives and values, the collection prioritises the voices of African scholars, activists and practitioners.
ALMN’s debut publication will be released in early 2021 through ZED/Bloomsbury Books.
