Description - Queering India by Ruth Vanita

Queering India provides an understanding of same-sex love and eroticism in Indian culture and society. The essays focus on pre-colonial, colonial, and post-colonial gay and lesbian life in India to provide a comprehensive look at a much neglected area. The topics are wide-ranging, considering film, literature, popular culture, historical and religious texts, law and other aspects of life in India. All the essays are original to the collection.
