Abstract

This article grows out of a larger project on homophile internationalism that linked Europe and North America organizations, activists and writing during the post-war decades. More than just participating in a North Atlantic exchange, these homophile activists had a global vision, one that sought to uncover, explore and archive same-sex intimacies worldwide. Utilizing travel writing, ethnographic studies and personal memoirs homophiles produced a popular anthropological account of homosexuality, one they implicitly linked to Cold War human rights discourse, liberal law reform, and normative social claims.
