Illegal Citizens: Queer Lives in the Muslim World


In "Illegal Citizens: Queer Lives in the Muslim World", Afdhere Jama chronicles the struggles of 33 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people in 22 countries. The majority of these people live in countries where it is illegal to have same-sex relationships. Caught between the modern world and the severe laws they face, many risk everything by meeting, having sex, or falling in love with other queers. "These are powerful stories. Of hurt, death and passion. But most importantly of forbidden love. In Illegal Citizens: Queer Lives in the Muslim World, Afdhere Jama records the lives of queer people in the Muslim world. And what makes the work stand out is the subjects themselves and the matter-of-factness with which the author tells their stories." – Indian Express."Many of the stories in the book are 'untold stories' because there are communities that we know nothing about." – Eureka Pride. "[Illegal Citizens] offers 33 compelling snippets about the ways gay Muslim men and women cope, suffer, yet still often find a way to love who they wish (despite treatment that can vary from tolerance to violence)" – Frontiers.
