"How can we understand the closet if we do not understand our visibilities? Tucker has provided an impressive study driven by intellectual parley between geography, queer theory, postcolonial and development studies. This book adds to the already powerful queer geographies on a fascinating place as well as to debates around queer globalisations."
–Michael Brown, University of Washington
