Annick Prieur - Mema's House, Mexico City: On Transvestites, Queens, and Machos - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Annick Prieur - Author of : Mema's House, Mexico City: On Transvestites, Queens, and Machos
Paperback - 264 pages (January 1998)
University of Chicago Press (Trd); ISBN: 0226682579

"TransGender Studies; Mema's house, in a crowded urban space on the outskirts of Mexico City, is a sanctuary for several young homosexual men. In this book, Prieur analyzes the complicated relations between the effeminate homosexuals, most of them transvestites, and their partners, the masculine-looking bisexual men, ultimately asking why these particular gender constructions exist in the Mexican working classes and how they can be so widespread in a male-dominated society."

Carol Queen (Ed.) - Pomosexuals : Challenging Assumptions About Gender and Sexuality - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Carol Queen - Editor of : Pomosexuals : Challenging Assumptions About Gender and Sexuality
Paperback - 180 pages 1 Ed edition (September 1997) 
Cleis Pr; ISBN: 1573440744

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"We live in a complicated world, and according to PoMoSexuals, it is a lot more complicated than we thought. Now that society has become accustomed to the idea that gay men and lesbians exist, Lawrence Schimel and Carol Queen have brought together 15 essays dedicated to demolishing those categories. They are not, of course, arguing that homosexuals don't exist, but simply that these categories and words cannot do justice to the wondrous complexity of human sexuality. In PoMoSexuals you can read about heterosexual women who identify as gay men, the politics of placing a transgendered personal ad, and how trendy gay male ghetto culture is less about sexual liberation than brand-name accumulation. No matter what your sexual identity is, PoMoSexuals will startle and enlighten, provoke and entertain."

Saskia E. Wieringa, Evelyn Blackwood - Female Desires : Same-Sex Relations and Transgender Practices Across Cultures - GLBT Non-Fiction All Books by Saskia E. Wieringa and Evelyn Blackwood - Author of : Female Desires : Same-Sex Relations and Transgender Practices Across Cultures
Paperback - 352 pages (March 1999) 
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 0231112610

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Winner of the 1999 Benedict Prize, sponsored by the Benedict Committee of the Society of Lesbian and Gay Anthropologists Evelyn Blackwood and Saskia Wieringa have compiled thirteen essays from a group of historians, sociologists, and anthropologists who discuss same-sex desire among women outside the West, exploring female eroticism in such societies and cultures as India, Polynesia, Latin America, Native North America, and southern Africa. Female Desires offers compelling evidence against the commonly accepted notion that non-Western women are generally passive victims of male domination and compulsory heterosexuality. It also dispels the idea that same-sex female desire is rooted in Western neo-imperialist culture: contributors show non-Western women to be active agents of their own sexual identities. Essays include Giti Thadani on lesbian desire in ancient and modern India, Saskia Wieringa on butch-femme social types in Indonesia and Peru, and Norma Mogrovejo on the lesbian movement in Mexico. In a larger sense, the essays attempt to look past the ethnocentric categories in which sexuality, identity, and culture are often considered."
