Denis Provencher – “Queer-Arab-French: Sexuality, Islam and Citizenship in France” – September 13, 2010

How do Maghrebi-French men negotiate and understand same-sex desire within a French urban context? Does the ethnic North African, who pursues erotic same-sex relationships in France, identify himself as “gay” or “homosexual”? Can these men explain themselves to their families, to their diasporic North African communities, and relate to their Muslim faith? In this presentation, Professor Denis Provencher explores the process by which Maghrebi-French men have begun to construct alternative same-sex identities with the recovery of North African traditions.
