Boy-Wives and Female Husbands: Studies in African Homosexualities (Suny Press Open Access)

This book is about Will Roscoe
In "Boy-Wives and Female Husbands: Studies in African Homosexualities," scholar Will Roscoe offers a groundbreaking exploration into the complex history of gender and sexuality across African cultures. Published on April 1, 2021, by Suny Press Open Access, this pivotal work challenges the deep-seated colonialist ideologies that have historically denied the existence of homosexuality in African societies. By weaving together anthropology, history, and gender studies, Roscoe illuminates the rich diversity of African sexual identities before colonial influences, providing a crucial academic resource for college students and scholars alike. This book not only broadens our understanding of gender equality but also invites readers to critically reflect on how colonial legacies have shaped—and often distorted—our understanding of non-Western sexualities. "Boy-Wives and Female Husbands" is an essential read for those looking to deepen their understanding of global gender issues and the fight for LGBTQ+ rights within different cultural contexts.
