Abstract

In this paper, Rob Kitchin develops a Foucaultian analysis of the sexual production of no-nheterosexual space, tracing out the contingent and contested nature of socio-sexual relations in three cities: Belfast, Manchester and San Francisco. For each city, a basic historical and geographical analysis is produced, charting how discursive and material processes enacted by state and citizens and operating at different scales (region, nation) are grounded locally in particularized ways; how local nuances created through varying social, economic and political context and events create contingent and relational systems of regulation, selfregulation and resistance that manifest themselves in differing socio-spatial productions.
