This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book illustrates, both in Europe and in North and Latin America, intersectionality has become a crucial frame to make visible and take into account structural racism in feminist activism and discourses. It explores the rise of autonomous queer Muslim activism in the UK, partly as a response to the lack of visibility given to queer Muslims by the mainstream civil society organisation, Stonewall. The book examines how and when Stonewall have sought to address issues of Islamophobia, as well as their important role in helping support the autonomous organising of groups set up specifically by and for queer Muslims. It argues that despite an explicitly articulated commitment to intersectionality and to intersectional theory, racialised narratives of violence continue to have a purchase on white anti-violence activists, who are thus unable to interrogate or confront relational privileges.
