I'm working on something longer in response to this racist crap but I don't have the brain energy to finish it right now... But if you haven't heard about it yet, short version is Peter Tatchell has responded to an article in which his imperialist queer politics are critiqued with a racist, defensive and undermining attack on the authors, which has basically forced the book which the chapter appears in out of print. Grassroots Feminism has a roundup of links which is a good place to start.

The chapter is "Gay Imperialism: Gender and Sexuality Discourse in the 'War on Terror", by Jin Haritaworn, Tamsila Tauqir and Esra Erdem, and it's in the book Out of Place: Interrogating Silences in Queerness/Raciality (ed. Adi Kuntsman & Esperanza Miyake, 1998).
