For over three decades, geographers have investigated the ways in which certain sexualities (re)produce social and spatial orders that are imbued with uneven power relations. This chapter highlights some of the key contributions of feminist and queer scholars to the geographies of sexualities; tracing the field’s early concerns with mapping the spatial basis of lesbian and gay identities through to a broader concern of disrupting taken-for-granted spatial orders which continue today in respects of ‘heteronormativity’. The authors argue that there remains much to queer within this lively and increasingly diverse field of geography.
