Chapter 4 traces the relationship between heteronormativities and figurations of the ‘homosexual’ in domestic and international discourses of im/migration and terrorism, arguing that figurations of the ‘unwanted im/migrant’ and the ‘terrorist’ are among articulations of the ‘perverse homosexual’ in these Western discourses of sovereign statecraft as sovereign mancraft. The chapter analyzes these figurations through IR literatures on the securitization of the ‘unwanted im/migrant’ and the ‘terrorist’ (specifically the ‘al-Qaeda terrorist’) with queer migrations and queer terrorism literatures on how the ‘queer’, the ‘migrant’, the ‘queer migrant’ and the ‘terrorist’ put sexuality on the move in relation to the home and the homeland.
