Dr. Nick Mulé’s research interests are in the areas of advocacy, social inclusion/exclusion of gender and sexually diverse populations (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, two-spirit, genderqueer, intersex, queer, questioning – LGBTQ) in social policy and service provision and the degree of recognition of these populations as distinct communities in cultural, systemic and structural contexts. He also engages in critical analysis of the LGBTQ movement and the development of queer liberation theory.

Current research projects include a study of the regulation of advocacy and political activity in Canada’s voluntary sector and its implications on charities and non-profits. Another study examines the recognition and legitimization of gender and sexually diverse populations in policy at the United Nations. Nick also writes about the LGBT movement applying a critical liberationist analytical perspective and is currently conducting research on the development of queer liberation theory.

At the School of Social Work he teaches core and elective courses that span theory, policy and practice at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

In the past he was a founding member of Amnesty International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Action Circle; founding board member for the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition, active with the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights in Ontario (CLGRO) for 20 years including director and spokesperson; founded and was chairperson of the Rainbow Health Network.

Current Research Projects

Dark Tribe: Subaltern Gay Male Sex

    Summary:

    This study looks at male-to-male sexual activity in the subaltern world of male sexual spaces. The importance of such spaces is examined regarding opportunities, safety, etiquette, status, safer sex practices, negotiation and navigation of sexual expression through sexual activity and time-limited communal engagement for sexual pleasure and affirmation, and how all of this contrast normative societal expectations.

    Description:

    Through hard copy and online content analysis and observations in the subaltern world of gay male sexual spaces such as bathhouses, circuit clubs, sex clubs and dark rooms, examined is a self-monitored subculture that creates its own tribal rituals at various odds with societal norms. By deviating from and resisting such norms, this tribe demonstrates how it maintains a core drive of their liberated sexuality outside of mainstreamed sexual governance.

Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights

    Summary:

    Envisioning Global LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights is an international research project that fosters links between Canada and the Global South and will document and analyze i) criminalization of LGBT people, ii) flight from violence and persecution, iii) resistance to criminalization, and iv) the interaction between International Treaty Body Human Rights Mechanisms and LGBT rights initiatives.

    Description:

    Envisioning will examine locations where challenges to criminalization of sexual minorities are underway and research and document the complex processes underlying these cultures of resistance. While criminalization is at the core of our study, the oppression that LGBT people face includes broader forms of stigmatization, hatred and marginalization. Envisioning will research and document conditions affecting LGBT people, working with grassroots human rights, HIV/AIDS and LGBT groups that work to advance the rights of sexual minorities. Envisioning brings together an international, interdisciplinary alliance of community partners, filmmakers, academic and community-based researchers and students to undertake a project of applied research, participatory video and documentary, skills exchange, capacity enhancement and knowledge mobilization.

Queer Liberation Theory: Resurrection and Development

    Summary:

    A community-based research study with social justice group Queer Ontario involving academics, activists and artists, exploring the principles and tenets of the gay liberation movement of the late 1960s/70s and their utility today. With further funding this project has been internationalized looking at the historical gay liberation movements of Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States as well as queer mobilizations in non-Western regions of the world.

This will include content analysis of historical gay liberation movements in Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States and data gathering via questionnaires and interviews internationally.

Dr. Nick Mulé’s research interests are in the areas of advocacy, social inclusion/exclusion of gender and sexually diverse populations (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, two-spirit, genderqueer, intersex, queer, questioning – LGBTQ) in social policy and service provision and the degree of recognition of these populations as distinct communities in cultural, systemic and structural contexts. He also engages in critical analysis of the LGBTQ movement and the development of queer liberation theory.

Current research projects include a study of the regulation of advocacy and political activity in Canada’s voluntary sector and its implications on charities and non-profits. Another study examines the recognition and legitimization of gender and sexually diverse populations in policy at the United Nations. Nick also writes about the LGBT movement applying a critical liberationist analytical perspective and is currently conducting research on the development of queer liberation theory.

At the School of Social Work he teaches core and elective courses that span theory, policy and practice at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Nick is also active at the community level as founder and chairperson of Queer Ontario. In the past he was a founding member of Amnesty International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Action Circle; founding board member for the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition, active with the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights in Ontario (CLGRO) for 20 years including director and spokesperson; founded and was chairperson of the Rainbow Health Network.

Current Research Projects

Dark Tribe: Subaltern Gay Male Sex

    Summary:

    This study looks at male-to-male sexual activity in the subaltern world of male sexual spaces. The importance of such spaces is examined regarding opportunities, safety, etiquette, status, safer sex practices, negotiation and navigation of sexual expression through sexual activity and time-limited communal engagement for sexual pleasure and affirmation, and how all of this contrast normative societal expectations.

    Description:

    Through hard copy and online content analysis and observations in the subaltern world of gay male sexual spaces such as bathhouses, circuit clubs, sex clubs and dark rooms, examined is a self-monitored subculture that creates its own tribal rituals at various odds with societal norms. By deviating from and resisting such norms, this tribe demonstrates how it maintains a core drive of their liberated sexuality outside of mainstreamed sexual governance.

Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights

    Summary:

    Envisioning Global LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights is an international research project that fosters links between Canada and the Global South and will document and analyze i) criminalization of LGBT people, ii) flight from violence and persecution, iii) resistance to criminalization, and iv) the interaction between International Treaty Body Human Rights Mechanisms and LGBT rights initiatives.

    Description:

    Envisioning will examine locations where challenges to criminalization of sexual minorities are underway and research and document the complex processes underlying these cultures of resistance. While criminalization is at the core of our study, the oppression that LGBT people face includes broader forms of stigmatization, hatred and marginalization. Envisioning will research and document conditions affecting LGBT people, working with grassroots human rights, HIV/AIDS and LGBT groups that work to advance the rights of sexual minorities. Envisioning brings together an international, interdisciplinary alliance of community partners, filmmakers, academic and community-based researchers and students to undertake a project of applied research, participatory video and documentary, skills exchange, capacity enhancement and knowledge mobilization.

Queer Liberation Theory: Resurrection and Development

    Summary:

    A community-based research study with social justice group Queer Ontario involving academics, activists and artists, exploring the principles and tenets of the gay liberation movement of the late 1960s/70s and their utility today.
