n Acta Academica - These queer gardens : a South African story

Volume 46, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0587-2405

In the course of their attempt to co-author an academic paper on the history of the struggle for sexual minority freedom in South Africa, they are confronted by their own histories, contradictions, literary influences and context - confrontations that ultimately mirror the instability of subjectivity and the valences of a critically queer positionality in post-apartheid South Africa.
