520    Drawing on ethnographic encounters with self-identified 
       gay men in Iran, this book explores the construction, 
       enactment, and veiling and unveiling of gay identity and 
       same-sex desire in the capital city of Tehran. The 
       research draws on diverse interpretive, historical, online
       and empirical sources in order to present critical and 
       nuanced insights into the politics of recognition and 
       representation and the constitution of same-sex desire 
       under the specific conditions of Iranian modernity. As it 
       engages with accounts of the persecuted Iranian gay male 
       subject as a victim of the barbarism of the Islamic 
       Republic of Iran, the book addresses interpretive 
       questions of sexuality governance in transnational 
       contexts and attends to issues of human rights frameworks 
       in weighing social justice and political claims made by 
       and on behalf of sexual and gender minorities. The book 
       thus combines empirical data with a critical consideration
       of the politics of same-sex desire for Iranian gay men.
