On British South Asian Gay and Bisexual Men’s Negotiation of Sexuality, Intimacy and Marriage*

Creolizing Europe

Christian Klesse

Liverpool University Press

Christian Klesse engages with the experiences, narratives and viewpoints of British South Asian Men who participated in a study on discourses on non-monogamy in gay and bisexual male social movement spaces (1997-2003). Focusing on British Asian gay and bisexual men’s criticism of white British lesbigay racism and cultural hegemony the chapter calls into question one-dimensional discourses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The analysis draws on queer diaspora perspectives and public sphere theories to understand lesbian, gay male, bisexual, transgender and queer spaces and networks as a source for a rather troubled experience of ‘multiculturalism’.

Keywords:   British Asian, queer, non-monogamy, gay marriage, public sphere
