This progress report considers precarious geographies of genders and sexualities at a range of intersecting scales. In a time currently characterised as precarious, anxious and insecure, feminist and queer geographers are well placed to examine vulnerable geographies - including their own - of bodies, lives and labours. The review considers the ways precarity operates as a concept, condition and experience by first, asking what and where is precarity? Second, a recurring theme throughout feminist and queer precarious geographical literature is the importance of foregrounding relationality, the multiscalar, and marginalised bodies. Ultimately, what it means to feel ‘secure’ shifts and changes across places, genders and sexualities.
