n Gender Questions - South Africa and the dream of love to come: Queer sexuality and the struggle for freedom, Brenna M. Munro : book review

Volume 1, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 2309-9704



An axiomatic 'rainbow nation', in 1996, post-apartheid South Africa was the first country in the world to recognise gays and lesbians as full citizens in its constitution. Brenna M. Munro's book, , informed by queer cultural studies and historiography, sets out to systematically chronicle the changing (and often contradictory) status of queer sexuality and citizenry in South Africa, as presented in diverse literary and artistic media. This book places particular emphasis on the often disregarded role played by queer citizenry in the construction of new imaginings of the 'rainbow nation'.
