ON POLITICAL HOMOPHOBIA AND ANTI-FEMINISM

This Dossier contains articles, emerged from the conference „Queer Feminist Perspectives on Political Homophobia and Anti-Feminism in the Middle East and Europe“, which brought together academics, activists and artists within a digital space.

The main objectives were to situate far-right and authoritarian actors in their respective socio-historical contexts; to discuss how political homophobia and anti-feminism have developed as core ideological elements of the far right in a local and transregional framework and to shed light on local, transregional, and global responses to homophobia and anti-feminism in the respective regions.

In many cases these groups appear to be backed and inspired both by influential US-American “pro life” organisations as well as the Kremlin’s "Gay-rope" propaganda, which aims to discredit the European Union as a place of moral decline.
