About the Author

Ryan R. Thoreson, a JD candidate at Yale Law School, is a former Scott Hitt Research Fellow at the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.


"The first of its kind, this book responds in a balanced, self-reflexive, nuanced, empirically-based way to a number of sharp critiques of Western human rights activists, frameworks and 'imperialisms.' With careful ethnographic observation in a series of case studies, Ryan R. Thoreson makes a significant contribution to the scholarship on human rights, on global sexualities and, hence, to the cause of sexual minority rights in the global South and Africa in particular." --Marc Epprecht, Queen's University
