Ahmed juxtaposes the local narratives of queer identity in Bangladesh with attempts at more neoliberal activism deemed acceptable on the global stage. By tracing the history of queer liberation as an Underground decolonial struggle, he argues that reclaiming histories is part of a broader utopian goal towards grassroots emancipation.
