A new account of the formation of sexual identity, coined 'emerged fusion', which avoids the traps of the essentialism versus constructivism debate, and offers a viable third alternative. This book is a theoretical tool that will be useful in sociology, queer studies, and gender studies as a new approach to understanding sexual identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This work makes a significant contribution to the field in its original account and application of phenomenology to debates over experience, identity, and desire.' - Linda Alcoff, Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, Syracuse University, USA

'This nuanced and carefully argued account of identity provides a philosophically satisfying description of the interplay of history and human agency, and a politically energizing account of social self construction. By showing how sexuality is both contextually determined and chosen, Wilkerson reminds us of the inevitability of diversity, and the importance of fostering cultures where queer choices are fully sanctioned.' - Chris Cuomo, Professor of Philosophy, Director of the Institute for Women's Studies, University of Georgia, USA

'A very clear, balanced, and helpful treatment of the thorny question of gay identity.' - Michael Warner, Professor of English, Yale University, USA
