This shorter discussion piece examines the ways in which sexuality is theorised within social work. The author briefly analyses a dominant version of sexuality theory found in anti-discriminatory practice, before going on to suggest an alternative approach based upon an analysis of how ‘sexuality’ itself is produced and put to use within social work discourse. The author proposes that desire might be used as a way to question limiting conceptions of sexuality, and to highlight and challenge heteronormative practices within social work.
