Revolutionary Love: Queer Voices in Diaspora features writings by first and second generation queer immigrants at the University of Minnesota and in the Twin Cities, who through the ethics of love stand bravely for social justice, love and respect for the oppressed and marginalized communities including immigrants, refugees, LGBTQIA, women and communities of color.

as queers in diaspora with an audience both from the University of
Minnesota and Twin Cities.
