About this book

This book addresses LGBTQ issues in relation to among others law and policy, mobility and migration, children and family, social well-being and identity, visible and invisible landscapes, teaching and instruction, parades, arts and cartography and mapping. A variety of research methods are used to explore identities, communities, networks and landscapes, all which can be used in subsequent research and classroom instruction and disciplinary and interdisciplinary levels. This extensive book stimulates future pioneering research ventures in rural and urban settings about existing and proposed LGBTQ policies, individual and group mapping, visible and invisible spaces, and the construction of public and private spaces. Through the methodologies and rich bibliographies, this book provides a rich source for future comparative research of scholars working in social work, NGOs and public policy, and community networking and development.

About the editors

Marianne Blidon defended the first Ph.D. in gay and lesbian geographies in France.  Based on interviews, vernacular literature and an online survey, she demonstrated that tension between discretion – as a norm- and the need to meet peers is less frequently managed by distance from family environments, more frequently by a constant, daily, reappraisal of social distance. She focused on urban/rural opposition, LGB migratory paths, representations and daily practices, scales of queer experiences. She has published in special issues on LGBT, gender and feminist issues. Currently, she works on special issues about geographies of trauma and feminist geographies. 

Stanley D. Brunn, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Geography at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, USA. His research interests cover a broad array of topics within urban geography, economic geography, social geography, information/communications geography, geotechnology and cyberspace, time-space intersections, law, political, and environmental geography, geographical future, as well as disciplinary history.
