Everyday erotics : Older Chinese lesbians and bisexual women

Activity: Talks or PresentationsPublic Lecture


This talk presents the life stories of older Chinese lesbians and bisexual women (born in the 1940s and 50s) in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan through an interdisciplinary ethnography combining fieldwork and cultural analysis of inter-Asia mediations of femininities and masculinities. I will examine the figure of the Chinese lesbian as both real and imagined in our historical narratives and contemporary social worlds.
