Canadian Homonationalisms and the Politics of Belonging
This book contends that Canada’s acceptance of “gay rights” obscures and abets multiple forms of oppression and details how, in the fight for equality and inclusion, some LGBTQ communities gain acceptance within the mainstream, and as a result become complicit in a system that fortifies white supremacy, furthers settler colonialism, advances neoliberalism, and props up imperialist mythologies.

Drawing on media, popular culture, and recent court cases, this book examines how various forms of non-monogamy (polygamy, adultery, and polyamory) are represented in the public sphere, how some forms of non-monogamy are tolerated and others vilified, and the effects such privileging is having on intimate relationships and other aspects of contemporary Western society.
Diversity and the Limits of Tolerance
