Queer Muslim Diasporas in Contemporary Literature and Film is the first book-length study devoted to the production of queer Muslim fictional narratives from around the globe, but mostly centred in their migration to "the West". It pays culturally sensitive attention to the intersection of sexual orientation, migration, and faith, and what it does to people's identities, which often clash with each other but also overlap in significant ways.
