Queer Wales, a collection of essays on sexuality, identity, and Wales

In recent years, we have become more aware of the complexity of Welsh identities (national, European, racial, colonial, economic, etc), and a major feature of this complexity is the queering of Welsh history and culture. Queer Wales is currently being studied, written, performed, legislated, mapped, bought and sold, yet, as far as sexuality is concerned, to what extent is Wales still "The Land of my Fathers" and the "Land of the White Gloves"? At what point may we begin to articulate a coherent queer history and community in Wales?
