This book is an attempt to provide an overview of the situation of LGBTIQ+ studies on all continents. Few universities offer LGBTIQ+ studies, modules, or courses. Most queer studies are conducted under the umbrella of the Gender Studies department, while LGBTIQ+ studies are marginalized in higher education and the community still suffers from exclusion and discrimination. This book, which gathers voices from around the world, is merely a first step towards a world that will hopefully be characterized by diversity, understanding and respect.
