One can imagine the differences between the everyday life experiences of Chinese lesbians living in Hong Kong, Taipei, Beijing, Singapore or in diasporic Chinese communities in Vancouver or San Francisco. What does it mean for a global city such as Hong Kong to have lesbian spaces? Conversely, how do lesbian spaces contribute to our common understanding of the city’s cosmopolitan nature?
