For this themed edition, we take gender and sexuality as our overarching concern. Gender and sexuality are in the category of 'always already', present in the contexts of applied performance and drama education. Although, in some respects, gender and sexuality are present in all the work that is done with communities, this issue focuses on work where the issues of gender and sexuality rise to the surface. In this edition, we are profiling work that is about gender and sexuality as forms of identity, as modes of living and, in some cases, as means of resisting gendered status quo where the issue is gender and sexuality.
