"Both scholarly and enthralling, Allah Made Us succeeds in introducing us to a fascinating world usually hidden from Western view, as well as making a strong case for how sexual and gender expression andits transgressionis deeply embedded in individual cultures." (Gay & Lesbian Review, November 2009)"Gaudio's splendid book is a candid portrait of men practicing identities that confront Western and Islamic ideologies of gender and sexuality: Such is their daring, paradoxical bid for cultural citizenship."
–Stephen William Foster, author of Cosmopolitan Desire
"Allah Made Us insightfully explores ‘sexual citizenship’ and displays Gaudio's extraordinary skill in revealing language as both a medium of participation by sexual outlaws and as an instrument of stigmatizing control by outsiders."
–Paul V. Kroskrity, University of California, Los Angeles
"Allah Made Us sets new standards in the analysis of African sexualities. Rudi Gaudio accomplishes this feat in a way that is accessible for general readers, even while he contributes to specialist debates. A major achievement."
–Donald L. Donham, University of California, Davis
