Short description

The project follows three cultural products: The rainbow flag, identified as secular and progressive, The veil, as religious, and manga, as post-secular. The aim is to examine their role in the making of transnational communities, which, intentionally or unintentionally, reiterate, resist or recast gender and sexuality norms.
