Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter presents a summary of the book. The book provides a glimpse of the ways in which certain notions about sexuality (be it sexual orientation, sexual diversity, or gendered politics) are framed, regulated and managed in relationship with religion, religious and secular ideologies. It examines the ways the Anglican Communion has sought to create a universal covenant for its members, highlighting the challenges faced within a large religious organization where individual opinion and perspective varies dramatically. The book integrates colonial and racial theory in her examination of the construction of homosexual identities in Africa, specifically examining religious and political voices in Uganda. The evangelical projects about the 'homosexual problem' in Uganda not only restrict sexual practices, they have a direct impact and influence on the MSM African self, which the author explores in diasporic context.

Keywords: Africa; Anglican Communion; gendered politics; globalized religion; homosexual identities; sexuality
