Book Review: The Politics of Love in Myanmar

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    To what politics of love does the title of Lynette Chua’s The Politics of Love in Myanmar refer? If Chua’s goal in going to Myanmar in 2012 was to study how lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) activists made sense of human rights and acted upon them to mobilize for social change, then what did she learn that led her to put it this way? What is distinctively political about love as a mode of human rights practice? What is noteworthy about its politics?
