The introductory chapter discusses how the topic of sexuality is influenced according to gender, race, class, nationality and religion. The chapter cites examples of queer relationships based on the current events. Sexuality in science fiction is just as complicated, as art imitates life. The chapter looks into the history of queer theory through political and cultural representations, and the future possibilities of queer sexuality as reflected in science fictions of the past century.

Keywords:   history of sexuality, queer science fiction, queer theory, sexuality in fiction, sexuality in literature
