Contesting fixed conceptions of identity increasingly informs political activism among several marginalized communities in Europe and beyond. Such approaches to activism challenge political struggles that are based on more traditional notions of identity. These developments are also operative in a range of musical practices. Drawing on examples from the LGBTQ+ community and minority communities in India, the 2021 MMRC Lecture sheds light on the relevance as well as the challenges of queering identity for minority studies and minority politics by bringing together scholarly, activist, and artistic viewpoints.
