Inhalt
The author offers the first ethnography of the global and transnational dimensions of gay identity as lived by Filipino immigrants in New York City, and describes how Filipino gay immigrants, like many queers of color, are creating alternative paths to queer modernity and citizenship. The author locates diasporic, transnational, and global facets of gay and other queer identities within the framework of quotidian struggles ranging from everyday domesticity to public engagements with racialized and gendered images to life-threatening situations involving AIDS. He reveals the gritty, mundane, and often contradictory deeds and utterances of Filipino gay men as key elements of queer globalization and transnationalism. Through an analysis of these men's lives and rituals, he demonstrates that transnational gay identity is not merely a consumable product or lifestyle, but rather a pivotal element in the multiple, shifting relationships that queer immigrants of color mobilize as they confront a changing world.
