Gay Life Stories – Same-Sex Desires in Post-Revolutionary Iran

Jón Ingvar Kjaran

Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, 233pp.

Drawing on ethnographic encounters with self-identified gay men in Iran, this book explores the construction, enactment, and veiling and unveiling of gay identity and same-sex desire in the capital city of Tehran. The research draws on diverse interpretive, historical, online and empirical sources in order to present critical and nuanced insights into the politics of recognition and representation and the constitution of same-sex desire under the specific conditions of Iranian modernity. As it engages with accounts of the persecuted Iranian gay male subject as a victim of the barbarism of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the book addresses interpretive questions of sexuality governance in transnational contexts and attends to issues of human rights frameworks in weighing social justice and political claims made by and on behalf of sexual and gender minorities. The book thus combines empirical data with a critical consideration of the politics of same-sex desire for Iranian gay men.

Writing a book has often been compared to a journey, from the initial idea to the publication of the book. For me, this book started with an actual journey to Iran in 2014—a journey that, back then, I did not know where it would take me in the end. I became fascinated with Iranian culture and the hospitality of its people, and met, for the first time, gay Iranians, who then became my friends and main informants during my subsequent fieldtrips. Until then, I had never met any gay- or lesbian-identifying Iranians and had only read about their situation in the Western media, which usually depicted them as sexually oppressed victims of the “Islamic-fascist” state, who were in need of being saved by the liberal democracies of the West. Hence, during my first trip there, I encountered a different world of gay life than the one depicted in the Western “gay” media: It was neither a world full of fear and oppression nor optimal in terms of gay livability. It was somehow a world or a place “in between,” being constantly made and remade by its occupants—some kind of heterotopia in a Foucauldian sense. It was a place/space that was somehow “other,” a world within a world, hidden and underneath mainstream society. It was a world with many more layers than immediately met the eye.

That was exactly my experience. To begin with, there were many aspects of gay life in Iran that did not straight away meet the eye of the researcher – the gay outsider coming from the West. I therefore had to “dig” deep into this world and meet different people, in different places/spaces, to get a glimpse of the many layers of the Iranian gay community, and to try to understand what it means to live as a gay subject in the Islamic Republic of Iran. I was guided from the beginning with the following question: How are Iranian gay males constituted as subjects in the Islamic Republic of Iran and how do they negotiate and navigate their lives within the limits of their cultural and social context? I gradually found out that there is no one answer to that question and therefore I present in this book different stories and versions of gay life in Iran; stories told by my friends and informants, who all identify as gay or non-heterosexual. Their stories and embodied experiences form the basis of the book and through them we gain insight into the livability of gay-identifying/non-heterosexual men in Iran. That being said, I do not claim to be giving a representative account of being gay or non-heterosexual in Iran. Rather, the book should be seen as presenting different aspects among many, in terms of gay livability in contemporary Iran. The main focus is predominantly on gay-identifying men living in Tehran, the capital of Iran.

Four years later, and after several fieldtrips to Tehran, I come to an end of my journey and present in a book the stories I was trusted with, told by my informants and friends. In Chap. 1, I give an overview of the main arguments of the book and its objectives. I also introduce the field andcontext of the research, as well as discuss my positionality and the ethical issues of conducting ethnographic research “underground.” Chapter 2 lays out the theoretical foundations, where I particularly draw on, and discuss the work of, Foucault and other post-structural theorists. Chapter 3 is co-written with my colleague and friend Wayne Martino. In Chap. 3, we engage with important historical sources and accounts that speak to the historical contingencies of the emergence of same-sex desire and the category of “the homosexual” in Iran. We incorporate into this account the political and social history of Iran from the latter part of the twentieth century until the present. Chapter 4 addresses the power of the pink press and how the Iranian gay subject is constructed through different discourses outside of Iran. Here I raise important political questions of misrepresentation in the reporting of the current situation of sexual minorities in Iran. In Chap. 5, I turn to ethical relationality and draw on the embodied experience of gay-identifying Iranian men. I take up a particular Foucauldian analysis and work mainly with Foucault’s ideas on the technologies or practices of the self. Throughout the chapter, I present empirical examples of how gay Iranian men constitute themselves, and how they are constituted by dominant discourses of gender and sexuality.

By providing different accounts of gay existence in Iran, the aim of the chapter is to juxtapose the one-dimensional liberationist discourse presented in the West of the victimized Iranian gay male, discussed in Chap. 4. Chapter 6 focuses on gay/queer activism among Iranian gay men, living inside of the Islamic Republic of Iran. It discusses what it means to be a gay activist, drawing attention to the socio-cultural context and particular historicity. It draws on interviews with gay-identifying Iranian males that could be seen/defined as activists, not only fighting for sexual rights but also political rights in general. Chapter 7 draws on Foucauldian analytical frameworks, as well as on Judith Butler’s writings on abjection, and addresses the intersection of sexuality, gender, and bodies in terms of HIV/AIDS. It explores how the discourse on HIV/AIDS has evolved within Iran and how those bodies, who live outside of what can be considered culturally intelligible in terms of seropositivity, sexuality, and gender, are constructed. Chapter 8 provides empirical insights into how gay/queer Iranian men navigate their lives between different spaces – social, virtual, and physical – in order to accommodate their gay identity and sexual desires within the legal-social and Islamicframe of modern Iran. By employing Foucauldian analytic frameworks that attend to questions of heterotopic spatiality, and in conjunction with Massey’s notion of power geometries and how space is produced, I illuminate the complexity of queer Iranian men’s spatio-temporal modes of sociality in relation to sexual practices and being gay/queer. The final chapter, Chap. 9, synthesizes my main arguments and discusses how we can go beyond the binary thought of utopia/dystopia, when addressing interpretive questions of quality of life and livability for gay-identifying men in a transnational context such as Iran.”

Heteroactivism, Homonationalism and National Projects

Call for Papers for session at the Royal Geographical Society with Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG) Conference, London 28-30 August 2019

Stefanie C. Boulila (University of Göttingen), Kath Browne (Maynooth University) and Catherine Jean Nash (Brock University),

Call for Papers for a session at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society with Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG), London 28-30 August 2019. Sponsored by the Space, Sexualities and Queer Research Group.

It has long been argued that the national project is inherently heteronormative – creating and celebrating specific family forms, as well as reiterating nationalistic visions through gendered and sexualised normativities (e.g. Binnie and Bell, 2000; Sharp, 1996; Yuval-Davis 1997). More recently, investigations of homonationalism have explored the cooption and use of (white) lesbian and gay ‘acceptances’ often in the form of civil unions to reproduce the national project, affirm racial hierarchies and engage in postcolonial military conflict (e.g. Puar, 2007; El-Tayeb 2011, Haritaworn 2012). At the same time there have been new forms of resistances to sexual and gender equalities, including anti-gender campaigns. As an analytical category, heteroactivism opens up a space to examine these phenomena relationally as well as in their heterogeneity (Browne and Nash, 2017).

The securitization of borders, the rise of populism and the far right in allegedly post-racial times require sexual and gendered analyses that engage with the multiplicities of support and oppositions to rights, equalities and intersectional justice. This session seeks explore the multifarious intersections of heteroactivism and nationalist projects. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • Race, religion and oppositions to/acceptances of sexual and gender liberations
  • Modernity, Europeaness And LGBT/Women’s rights
  • University Cultural wars and governmental interventions 
  • Sexualities of the far right/populisms
  • Gender Norms and nationalisms
  • Opposing the Oppositions/acceptances Confrontation, debate and protest, the promise of oppositional politics
  • Heteroactivism and homonationalist affirmations

If you are interested in submitting a paper, please send your expression of interest including title, abstract of up to 250 words, and your name and institutional affiliation to the session to kath.browne@mu.ie, sboulil@uni-goettingen.de, and cnash@brocku.ca by 31st January 2019.

Lesbian Lives Conference 2019

The Politics of (In) Visibility

Call for Proposals

University of Brighton, UK, 15-16 March 2019

EXTENDED DEADLINE: 18th January 2019

Following a great response to this years CFP we are extending the deadline to give more people the opportunity to be part of this brilliant event. The theme for the 2019 Lesbian Lives Conference is The Politics of (In) Visibility. The 24th edition of this conference is hosted by the University of Brighton Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender in conjunction with feminist scholars from University College Dublin and Maynooth University. The organisers of this two-day international and interdisciplinary conference now welcome proposals from academics, scholars, students, activists, documentary and film-makers, writers and artists.

The Lesbian Lives Conference is not just the world’s most longstanding academic conference in Lesbian Studies, it is a large international event that draws speakers and participants from all continents and hosts the best-known as well as emerging scholars in the field. In the past we have hosted Emma Donoghue, Jackie Kay, Joan Nestle, Sarah Schulman, Cherry Smyth, Del La Grace Volcano, Sarah Waters, Campbell X and academics such as Sara Ahmed, Terry Castle, Laura Doan, Lisa Downing, Lillian Faderman, Sarah Franklin, Claire Hemmings, Alison Hennegan, Sally R. Munt, Helena Whitbread, Bonnie Zimmerman among many others.

Moving beyond the notion of the politics of visibility as meaning only the politics of being ‘out’ or being about erasure from cultural representation, the conference seeks to further probe what the politics of (in)visibility means to the LGBTQ community and individuals today.  With celebrity culture and new media is visibility still a burning issue? Although visibility has increased, there are still media representations drawing predominantly on limiting stereotypes; lesbians, bisexual women and trans folks continue to be marginalised; yet visual activism and expression; from painting, photography, and documentary making to romcoms, comics, YouTube serials, and slasher fiction are at the heart of LBTQ culture.

The conference also would like to invite delegates to think about the politics of (In) visibility beyond visual culture and media representations, to include broader notions of public life and spaces. Gay culture may be increasingly visible in some metropolitan areas but lesbian spaces and places continue to be invisible. Similarly, Pride may be considered a moment of public visibility for the whole of the LGBTQ spectrum, but also in this case visibility is shaped by commercial interests and this again marginalises LBT and other non normative perspectives and experiences. Beyond these particular examples it is also important to consider intersectionality in relation to societal aspects of power that  potentially render identities  either or both in- and hyper visible.

Proposals are welcomed on (though are by no means limited to) the following:

·      The relation of queer to lesbian visibility 

·      Visual activism

·      Revisiting debates about LGBTQ visibility and its discontent

·      (In)visibility and intersectionality

·      (Bi) invisibility in LGBT communities 

·      Visibility in mainstream media 

·      Fake news and tablodisation of sexual identities 

·      Social media and visibility 

·      Lesbian YouTube culture

·      Sexuality and Instagram

·      Dating apps

·      Film and screen studies 

·      Comics

·      Photography 

·      LGBTQ domestic photography and home movies

·      Lesbians in the archives 

·      The visual imprint of subcultures

·      The lesbian lens 

·      The lesbian gaze

·      LBTQ looks 

·      Youth and (in)visibility

·      Visibility and social class / disability/ race/gender

·      Visibility and invisibility of LGBT in museums 

The conference organisers welcome proposals for (A) individual papers, (B) sessions, (C) round table discussions, (D) workshops and (E) visual presentations.  We encourage submissions across all genres, both fact and fiction which align to the conference theme, and which have been produced between 2015-2018.

Lesbian Lives aims to build bridges across disciplines and explore less traditional forms of critical engagement with the politics of (in)visibility. In 2019, this underlying ethos of inclusiveness and dialogue will materialize in a fundraiser exhibition. Under the remit of “The Lesbian Lens”, we invite artists to digitally submit visual work: drawing, painting, photography and video. The exhibition opening will take place on the 15th of March and it will close a week after.

For papers, panels or workshops, please submit proposals of no more than 300 words to: sexgencentre@brighton.ac.uk clearly the information required as per the guidelines below, by the 18 January 2019. For submissions to the exhibition, please send your work to: J.Keane@brighton.ac.uk

If your proposal is selected you may be directed to a formal submission through our contributions and registrations site. For all further details please see https://www.facebook.com/Lesbian-Lives-Conference-2019-316502112413277/

The Lesbian Lives Conference is open to all genders and any political and sexual orientations. There is an ethos of welcome and accessibility. 

We particularly want to extend a welcome to bi and trans communities.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference and to hearing the exciting papers, participating in the enlivening workshops, watching the phenomenal films and engaging in a process of learning and growth.

Best wishes, 

The Lesbian Lives Conference committee

Call for Papers: Special Issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies

Geographies of Sexualities

 

Guest Editor: Emily Kazyak

Email address: ekazyak2@unl.edu

Abstract deadline: November 1, 2018

Questions of geography, space, and location are integral to sexuality scholarship.  For instance, scholars have asked: How do LGBTQ+ identities, communities, and activism form in cities? How are rural areas, contrary to popular assumptions, also spaces where LGBTQ+ identities, communities, and activism occur? What role do LGBTQ+ neighborhoods play in the changing nature of cities? How do LGBTQ+ people build intentional communities? How does gender matter insofar as the migration patterns and residential choices for lesbian women and gay men often look different? How do race, class, and gender matter in LGBTQ+ urban spaces? More global and transnational perspectives open up questions including: How does migration matter for the ways in which people make sense of their sexuality? How do sexuality and gender identity inform the processes of seeking asylum? How do the categories, identities, and forms of activism that exist in one context or country not always translate to another context or country?

The goal of this special issue is to build on this scholarship and illuminate why it continues to be important for sexuality scholars to interrogate questions of geography, space, and location.

Contributors are asked to consider how binaries related to space, location, and geography inform understandings of sexuality and matter to the identities and experiences of lesbians. For instance, how are binaries such as urban/rural, private/public, center/border, South/North, migrant/native, global/local, salient?

Contributors may also interpret the theme of spaces more broadly and think about how sexuality matters and how the identities and experiences of lesbians matter in or are shaped by a variety of contexts, including but not limited to: families, schools, online communities, courtrooms, LGBTQ+ neighborhoods and communities, and pride parades.

The Journal of Lesbian Studies is an interdisciplinary journal and the special issue invites contributions from scholars in multiple fields and scholars using multiple methodologies and theoretical frameworks to understand the intersections of geography and sexuality.

Submit abstracts of 200-250 words, and a 2-3 page CV, to Emily Kazyak at ekazyak2@unl.edu by November 1, 2018. Acceptance notifications will be sent by December 1, 2018, and completed manuscripts are due March 1, 2018.

Programação completa do Queer Lisboa 21 Setembro 6, 2017

Posted by paulo jorge vieira in activismo, LGBT em portugal, lgbt no mundo, Uncategorized.

01 Set, 2017 / por Queer Lisboa / em Queer Lisboa 21

Em 2017, o Queer Lisboa entra na sua terceira década de existência com a exibição de 90 filmes de 32 países. Além da retrospetiva dedicada à artista multimédia Shu Lea Cheang, a ter lugar no Cinema São Jorge e no MNAC – Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea do Chiado, e da muito aguardada estreia do filme God’s Own Country, do britânico Francis Lee, na Noite de Abertura, o Queer Lisboa 21 vai acolher muitas mais surpresas e convidados internacionais.

Depois de, em 2016, termos celebrado uma data redonda de aniversário, o número recorde de filmes que os nossos programadores visionaram este ano, permitiram-nos construir um programa que parece todo ele traçar linhas narrativas, estéticas, formais e, até mesmo, ideológicas, que permitem antever direções do cinema queer para as quais estaremos certamente atentos nos próximos anos.

Dos 32 países presentes, os EUA são o mais representado, com 21 filmes. A Alemanha e a França estão representados, em ex-aequo, com 12 filmes cada, seguindo-se o Brasil, com 10 filmes.

As competições do Queer Lisboa 21 são compostas não só pelas narrativas e temas “clássicos” do cinema queer, mas também por filmes que falam de religião, migrações, racismo, fronteiras, deficiência, política, ao mesmo tempo em que arriscam transdisciplinaridades, rompem cânones do cinema de género, abraçam novas linguagens audiovisuais e novos modelos de relação do espectador com essas linguagens. De volta estão, assim, as Competições de Longas-Metragens, Documentários, Curtas-Metragens, In My Shorts e Queer Art.

A secção Panorama ganha este ano um novo fôlego com a exibição de oito filmes: quatro ficções e quatro documentários. Destaque para 1:54, do canadiano Yan England, que estará em Lisboa, numa colaboração com a Embaixada do Canadá em Portugal. O filme é protagonizado por Antoine-Olivier Pilon (o protagonista de Mommy, de Xavier Dolan). Quand On A 17 Ans, de André Téchiné, um dos mais aclamados realizadores do cinema pós-Nouvelle Vague, terá a sua antestreia nacional no Queer Lisboa.

Já a secção Hard Nights terá em destaque Colby Keller, um dos mais populares atores porno da atualidade, bem como filmes recentes de Koichi Imaizumi, Sky Deep, Marit Östberg e Francy Fabritz.

A música volta com a secção Queer Pop, com um programa centrado na obra de George Michael e outro focado nos novos valores da música queer do Brasil.

O Queer Lisboa 21 terminará com a exibição do muito aplaudido Mãe Só Há Uma, de Anna Muylaert, premiado na Berlinale em 2016.

Durante o festival vão ainda realizar-se várias festas. A Festa de Abertura terá lugar no clube Fontória e contará com a música do trio Asneira (António Almada Guerra, João Villas-Boas e Tiago Pinhal Costa). No dia 21, o Queer Lisboa associa-se ao coletivo Groove Ball para uma festa no Rive-Rouge, enquanto um dia depois a festa será feita no clube Construction, onde estará presente Colby Keller. A Festa de Encerramento realiza-se no Titanic Sur Mer e nela vão passar música Sky Deep e Simºne.

A programação completa do Queer Lisboa 20 pode ser consultada aqui e o calendário de sessões aqui.

(cfp) New geographies of HIV/AIDS in times of PrEP Setembro 4, 2017

New geographies of HIV/AIDS in times of PrEP

Call for papers/panellists at the Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting, New Orleans, 10-14 April 2018 

 Convenors: Gavin Brown (University of Leicester) & Cesare Di Feliciantonio (Maynooth University)

 

Following the introduction and the expanding availability of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and improved uses of ‘treatment as prevention’ for those already infected with HIV, new infections-rates for HIV have started to decline, especially in those cities and among those populations where campaigning and public investments have been strongest. As argued by Auerbach and Hoppe (2015: 1), “getting PrEP to ‘work’ is more complicated than simply ‘getting drugs into bodies’”. Rather, PrEP embodies a range of interacting physiological, psychological and social realities that together affect (…) relationship dynamics, sexual cultures and social arrangements that have influence beyond HIV”.  In fact the use of PrEP (as well as the adherence to antiretroviral therapies, ARTs, for HIV-positive people) reshapes the meanings associated with categories such as ‘safe’, ‘bareback’ and ‘raw’ sex, offering new possibilities for empowerment as well as new forms of biopower (Dean, 2015; Preciado, 2015).  Given the persistent inequalities in the access and availability of PrEP, we think there is the need for a serious engagement by geographers and social scientists in producing knowledge about the emerging social and spatial dimensions of HIV prevention and treatment, including the ways in which new socio-technical assemblages of treatment and prevent have reconfigured the social, cultural, and sexual lives of people with (and at risk of infection from) HIV.

We invite contributions around (but not limited to) the following topics/questions:

  • the uneven geographies of PrEP accessibility and availability;
  • the political economy of PrEP;
  • the socio-technical materialities of PrEP;
  • PrEP, race, gender and class;
  • how PrEP impacts upon HIV-related acceptance and stigma;
  • the (uneven) social and spatial dimensions of the persistence of “Truvada whores” stigma (Calabrese and Underhill, 2015);
  • the sexual citizenship of undetectability;
  • PrEP as community-based activism;
  • PrEP as the expression of biopower;
  • comparative perspectives on campaigns, policies and strategies to implement PrEP access;
  • intersections between PrEP-related activism and HIV+-related activism
  • the geographical implications of ‘undetectability’;

 

Expressions of interest

We intend to organize a paper or panel session depending on the preferences of the participants. If interested, please contact Gavin Brown (gpb10@leicester.ac.uk) and Cesare Di Feliciantonio (difeliciantoniocesare@gmail.com) by October 6th; in the email please include a 250-words abstract if you prefer a paper session or a short outline (up to 7 lines) if you prefer a panel session. We will try to arrange the best format solution accordingly.
