There is the question of trans women [because some wonder if they are really women]. What other opportunities did they shut down? In the era of same-sex marriage, gay life has been domesticated. Who participated in the Gay Liberation Front? And it was similar in Britain, in the sort of people involved.
What other opportunities did they shut down? Most lesbians and gay men do not live in London, New York, San Francisco, Sydney or the handful of other global gay cities that dominate the literature. It is too early to tell how this centrifugal dispersal and displacement will reconfigure assemblages of sexual cultures and politics in cities like Leicester over the next few years.
