While sexual violence is an area that is well mapped by feminist scholarship, this volume will focus on transgressive and/or marginalized sexualities. It will bring together writings on India that have highlighted the transgression of norms - of heterosexuality, of feminine and masculine behaviour, of recognizably gendered bodies, that declare ungoverned desire to be illegitimate. Also included is a section of select documents from different sexuality movements in the country. This book is part of the series of 'Issues in Indian Feminism'. The other books in the series are: 'Gender & Caste' edited by Anupama Rao, 'Feminism in India' edited by Maitreyee Chaudhuri, 'Dowry & Inheritance' edited by Srimati Basu.
