The book platforms Romani agency and voices in an original and novel way. This enables the reader to feel the individuals behind the data, which detail stories of rejection by Romani families and communities, as well as non-Romani communities; and unfamiliar, ground-breaking stories of acceptance by Romani families and communities. Combining intersectionality with queer theory innovatively and applying it to Romani Studies, the author supports her arguments with data illustrating how queer Roma's identities are shaped by antigypsyism and its intersections with homophobia and transphobia.
This book will a be useful resource for libraries, community and social service workers, third-sector Romani and LGBTIQ organisations, activists and policymakers; and an invaluable source of information for scholars, teachers, as well as students of bigger modules in undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate courses in a cross-section of academic disciplines and subject areas.
