"The topic at hand is challenging because it invites us to recognize human biodiversity – with a degree of self-reflection and open-mindedness. This invitation to be humanistic and pluralistic is evidenced clearly in the great array of papers and abstracts submitted for this international conference on sexualities - from all over the world. The words used by these written submissions are wonderful and wondrous in their diversity and ingenuity. Many are most telling in their apprehensions, aspersions and aspirations, and call upon us to respond with a sense of humility and humanity. In all seriousness, a sense of humour is also needed at times in the face of the global environment of felicitous filibuster and rambunctious rancour."
