The relationship between non-normative sexualities and urban development is the focus of this chapter. The vast majority of the literature on sexuality in cities has focused on the Global North, especially Anglo-American cities in North America, Europe, and Australia, but it is evident that this is a more planetary issue. The chapter thinks through the diversity of same-sex attraction across the globe by reviewing and updating discussions in gentrification studies and beyond. Non-normative sexualities as both the pioneers of and victims of gentrification, including the demise of the gayborhood, are central debates. The chapter concludes that the complex ways in which capital and sexual orientation interact remain incompletely understood and that further research is needed on the relationship between non-normative sexualities and gentrification.
