This collection offers a critical introduction to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) transnational identity in the media, examining performances and representations within documentary and fiction oriented texts. Foregrounding the work of twenty international and interdisciplinary academic authors, the book covers diverse issues including: increasing oppression to gay men and lesbians in Uganda; transsexual identity in Iran and Malaysia; AIDS education and political demonstrations in South Africa; documentary within India and representations of the middle east; gender performances within Turkey; Latino cinema, pornography and issues of history; literary adaptation relating Egypt and the Caribbean; celebrity identity and transnational potential within the science fiction genre; and Chinese cinema and the potential for queer desire. LGBT transnational identity is explored as being multiple and different, but still connected through a common sense of identity. The contributors consider new identity constructions and emerging alliances, and offer new readings of queer potential.
