Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0822365162, Paperback)

Over the last several decades, queer sexualities, tourism industry marketing, tourist practices, and consumption patterns have converged to produce burgeoning outlets for the mobility of queer subjects. In the first collection ever devoted to scholarly articles on queer tourism, this special double issue of GLQ highlights the connections between political economy and sexuality and contributes to an emgerging body of literature on queer sexualities and globalization.
Essays explore a range of geographical areas and cover topics that include an autoethnographic account of a queer traveler in Cuba, the development of gay and lesbian tourism in Madrid and Mexico, and gay and lesbian tourist events such as World Pride 2001 in Rome. The collection also includes an essay focusing on lesbian tourism—a study of the history of lesbian tourism on Eresos, Lesvos.

Contributors. Lionel Cantú, Gabriel Giorgi, Venetia Kantsa, Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes, Michael Luongo, Kevin Markwell, Jasbir Kaur Puar, Dereka Rushbrook
