Representations of bisexuality in each of the texts I examine vary; however, together they form a crucial cartography of a liberalization of the imagination in post-apartheid South Africa: a space of anxiety and hope, a space particularly revealing the ongoing evolution of a national identity, and newly part of a global community. Reading bisexuality accurately contributes to the disruption of binaries and illumination of the interstitial associated with the post-apartheid moment in general, and contemporary South African literature and literary criticism in particular.

Bisexuality has been explored in increasing numbers of South African novels published since 1994. In a society previously dominated by an either/or mindset, what does this development signify?

Stobie reflects on the double rainbow (race and sex), and gives a short history of bisexuality in the West. This shows that if you take the Marjorie Garber approach, which is to say to treat many manifestations of sexuality generally as symptoms of bisexuality, you make of it a very inclusive frame. Stobie talks about variant sexualities in Africa and South Africa (boy wives, female husbands), intending to come out at a realistic epistemology of bisexuality in South Africa.
