In this remarkable and comprehensive anthology, many of Canada's leading sexuality studies scholars examine the fundamental role that sexuality has played--and continues to play--in the building of our nation, and in our national narratives, myths, and anxieties about Canadian identity.
Covering both historical and contemporary perspectives on law and criminal justice, organizing and resistance, health and medicine, labour, education, marriage and family, sport, popular and youth culture, and visual media, these essays also integrate marginalities such as race, class, and gender. This massive interdisciplinary collection is essential for the Canadian sexuality studies classroom, and for anyone interested in the mythologies and realities of queer life in Canada.
Reviews and Comments
"Remarkably engaged with generational, racial, ethnic, and gender heterogeneity, this reader interrogates all the contours of queer life. Queerly Canadian is vital for any library, scholar, [or] student."
"At last, we have a multidisciplinary Canadian queer studies anthology for reading, teaching, discussing, debating, and changing the way we think about sex, gender, and sexuality. Queerly Canadian showcases the extraordinary work of an exceptional group of scholar-activists."
"In Queerly Canadian, FitzGerald and Rayter have brought together the very best of queer and trans sexuality studies. From history to visual culture, activism to the criminal justice system, Queerly Canadian showcases the role of sexuality in queering notions of Canadian national identity. It is a must-read for scholars and students of sexuality studies globally."
"This fascinating, eye-opening collection marks a new and important step in the consolidation of queer sexuality studies in Canada. It also shows how an emphasis on the specificity of Canadian politics, history, and sexuality can contribute to queer studies as a whole. A significant achievement."
