Lesbian Spaces in Hong Kong

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

In order to understand lesbian spaces in Hong Kong, one needs to examine the meanings and cultural aspects of lesbian desires in an urban environment. Chinese lesbian sexualities vary in different historical, social and cultural contexts. 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?
