Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture – Amelia Abraham


Heddiw, mae’r opsiynau a’r rhyddid sydd ar gael i bobl LHDTC+ yn y Gorllewin yn fwy nag erioed o’r blaen. Ond a yw priodas cyfartal a gwelededd yn y cyfryngau yn ateb y disgwyliadau? Oes gost ar gyfer y derbyniad hwn a phwy sy’n cael eu gadael ar ôl? Mae Amelia Abraham yn chwilio am yr atebion i’r heriau hyn, yn ogystal â’r cwestiwn ehangach o’r hyn y mae’n ei olygu i fod yn cwiar heddiw.

Today, the options and freedoms on offer to LGBTQ+ people living in the West are greater than ever before. But is same-sex marriage, improved media visibility and corporate endorsement all it’s cracked up to be? At what cost does this acceptance come? And who is getting left behind, particularly in parts of the world where LGBTQ+ rights aren’t so advanced? Combining intrepid journalism with her own personal experience, in Queer Intentions, Amelia Abraham searches for the answers to these urgent challenges, as well as the broader question of what it means to be queer right now.

With curiosity, good humour and disarming openness, Amelia takes the reader on a thought-provoking and entertaining journey. Join her as she cries at the first same-sex marriage in Britain, loses herself in the world’s biggest drag convention in L.A., marches at Pride parades across Europe, visits both a transgender model agency and the Anti-Violence Project in New York to understand the extremes of trans life today, parties in the clubs of Turkey’s underground LGBTQ+ scene, and meets a genderless family in progressive Stockholm.
