In "Illegal Citizens: Queer Lives in the Muslim World", Afdhere Jama chronicles the struggles of 33 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people in 22 countries. The majority of these people live in countries where it is illegal to have same-sex relationships. Caught between the modern world and the severe laws they face, many risk everything by meeting, having sex, or falling in love with other queers.

Interesting, and hopeful, about their efforts to be themselves in societies that are not interested in allowing them a space to be. I hope to be able to read more--non-pornographic--accounts about their lives.
