This presentation reports on archival and interview-based research that examines the social and political meanings that self-identified queer, transgender, and gender-nonconforming adults associate with their safer sex practices.

Queer safer sex epistemologies and technologies are strategies for claiming the legitimacy of nonnormative bodies and sexualities, constructing a community ethics of care, and establishing symbolic relational boundaries.

At the same time, queer safer sex can be read as an expansion of biopolitical governance that works against an emancipatory political project.
