About this Book

Combining current theory and original fieldwork, Queer Visibilities explores the gap between liberal South African law and the reality for groups of queer men living in Cape Town.

  • Explores the interface between queer sexuality, race, and urban space to show links between groups of queer men
  • Focuses on three main 'population groups' in Cape Town-white, coloured, and black Africans
  • Discusses how HIV remains a key issue for queer men in South Africa
  • Utilizes new research data-the first comprehensive cross-community study of queer identities in South Africa
