  1. 1. LITERATURE REVIEW: QUEER STUDIES Paper : 3, Literature Review M.Phil Submitted to : SSCCM Enrollment No: 2154112220170001 Submitted by : Nidhi Jasani
  2. 2. Introduction  Problems of LGBT people  Their struggle for survival in main stream society.  Social, economical, psychological suppuration. 
  3. 3. Theory of Marginalization  “Marginals are people the system of labor cannot or will not use.” As a result, they are excluded from one of society’s major integrating activities, thereby missing out on one of the basic factors leading to full inclusion. - Iris MarionYoung
  4. 4. Queer Theory  Starting in the 1970s, a range of authors brought deconstructionist critical approaches to bear on issues of sexual identity  Queer theory explores and contents the categorization of gender and sexuality.  Queer theory is derived largely from post – structuralist theory.  . Queer theory is a multilayered, and rather complex, field of study.
  5. 5. Queer Theory  The term queer theory was introduced in 1990, with Eva Kosofasky Sedgwick, Judith Butler, Adrienne Rich and Diana Fuss (all largely following the work of Michel Foucault) being among its foundational proponents. Annamarie Jagose wrote QueerTheory: An Introduction in 1997.
  6. 6. Queer theory  Queer is slang for homosexual and worse, used for homophobic abuse. Recently, this term has been used as an umbrella term for a coalition of sexual identities that are culturally marginalized, and at other times, to create discourse surrounding the budding theoretical model that primarily arose through more traditional lesbian and gay studies.
  7. 7. Social Problems  LGBT people, as members of a social minority group, are suffering various forms of socio economic and cultural injustice.The lacks of social recognition has an effect on the capacity of LGBT people to fully access and enjoy their rights as citizens.
  8. 8. Social Problems  LGBT people are more likely to experience, intolerance, discrimination, harassment, and the threat of violence due to their sexual orientation, than those that identify themselves as heterosexual.
  9. 9. Social Problems  This marginalization often excludes LGBT people from many support structures, often including their own families, leaving them with little access to services many other take for granted, such as medical care, justice and legal services, and education.
  10. 10. Psychological Impact  Research shows in a region where marital rights and denied, LGBT people display higher levels of overall psychological distress, depression, anxiety and alcohol abuse than LGBT people in states with marital rights.
  11. 11.  Higher perceived family, workplace and friendship support reduces psychological distress in LGBT people. Evidence suggests that a supportive school environment with clear anti-discrimination and anti-hate crime laws, LGBT people display lower levels of psychiatric disorders than do LGBT people in states without such protection.
  12. 12.  Queering is the process of reversing and destabilising heterosexuality as a norm.  In defense of the term ‘queer’ which should justify engagements with queering sociology in India.
  13. 13. Conclusion  People are marginalized and the suffer a lot for their right as human being.  From this many issues and article we can conclude that, still LGBT struggle for their survival in mainstream society.  Now people are awake and try to find out the solution of problems of LGBT.
