Even the radically pro-LGBT magazine has admitted: "If there is a gay gene---no researcher has found it yet."10 And from the Jan./Feb. 2018 pro-LGBT : "[S]everal large studies scanning the entire human genome have not revealed a single, consistent genetic variant among males with homosexuality. Thus it is now clear that no specific 'gay gene' determines sexual orientation"(James O'Keefe, Evan O'Keefe, and John Hodes, "Evolutionary Origins of Homosexuality," p. 14).

Review: Advanced Nursing Research | NursingWriting

This special issue of GLQ seeks to animate a dialogue about the place, function, and intellectual and political possibilities of LGBT literature now. The “now” we invoke is an injunction or imperative to think about how the history of queer literary production must necessarily be rewritten, reconsidered, and returned to in light of the dramatic historical and scholarly transformations that have shaped queer life since the late 1980s. In 1996, Eve Sedgwick famously edited a groundbreaking issue of the journal Studies in the Novel titled “Queerer than Fiction,” that laid the foundation for a generation of queer literary interpretation. Arguably one of the first of its kind, this issue identified literature as one powerful site where reparative reading practices takes shape. She and others argued that the act of interpretation itself was a practice through which readers do something ameliorative with texts, making them functional for the flourishing of queer life. At the time of Sedgwick’s writing, queer literary production was clearly under severe pressure from the violent and life-negating experience of AIDS. Since then, queer lifeways, politics, and culture have been dramatically shaken by innumerable historical transformations that overdetermine any attempt to map LGBTQ literature by the traditional coordinates of gay shame, the closet, and narratives of gay liberation, and AIDS. LGBTQ literary production and history has been undoubtedly shaped, revised, and potentially undone by the AIDS epidemic; but also by 9/11, the advent of the digital era, mass incarceration, a more intimate relation with state power through the push for hate crimes legislation, the protracted struggle over gay marriage, gays in the military, and the ascendancy of transgender identity and rights in queer politics. We name these historical markers in order to indicate the new conditions under which queer literary production today takes place. How have these emergent historical events and forces shaped our reading practices, the texts being produced, and the market conditions under which contemporary queer literature is read, written, and taught? How do they unsettle, or force us to rewrite queer literary pasts?
