Queer scholarship on sexuality has often come uncoupled from debates about global capitalism but queer theorists are increasingly taking up struggles of economic and social justice as vital to those surrounding sexual justice, and vice versa. In so doing, they draw on and contribute towards the pre-existing work of feminist political economists by interrogating the linkages between heteronormative power relations and neoliberal capitalist logics. The chapter illustrates these themes through discussion of debates about the global sex industry and offers recent examples of scholarship on the theory and practice of queer sex work. It argues that queer theory and feminist political economy share a collective agenda: to situate body politics at the heart of struggles for economic and social justice.
