The Concept of “Homonationalism”

Massimo Prearo

“I note that some homosexual subjects are complicit with heterosexual nationalist formations rather than inherently or automatically excluded from or opposed to them.
In my monograph Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times I develop the conceptual frame of “homonationalism” for understanding the complexities of how “acceptance” and “tolerance” for gay and lesbian subjects have become a barometer by which the right to and capacity for national sovereignty is evaluated.”
