Ignorance and insecurity remain drivers of the vulnerabilities faced by sexual minorities. But the attitudes and stances that define a society’s views towards these marginal characters is not much different from the gaze it directs towards its women. This gaze remains consistent across cultures. Casey Plett explores the fate of being transgender in such a vulgar world in her essay Move Around while Jemima Sherpa writes of the illusions of security harboured by women cushioned by class privilege in Kathmandu Girls. These two eloquently written articles are definitely worth a read.
