While sexual violence is an area that is well mapped by feminist scholarship, this volume focuses on transgresive and marginalised sexualities. It brings together writings on India that highlight the transgression of norms-of heterosexuality. Of geminist and mascline behaviour, of recognisably gendered bodies-that declare ungovermed desire to be illegitinate. Sexualities also includes a selection of campaign documents from diverse sexuality movements in the country.
