I propose that queer activism, culture, and its scholarship should be grounded in the lived experiences and strategies of those who do and do not necessarily identify as gay, lesbian, or queer. This means subjects who reside within and at the periphery or the margins of a globalised epistemology of gay and human rights discourse.

There are no steps to self-realisation. There is nothing gradual about it. It happens suddenly and is irreversible….Just like on sunrise you see things as they are, so on self-realisation you see everything as it is. The world of illusions is left behind.
