Inhalt
The lives of gay men in Indonesia are, for the first time, explored in this book. Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation and home to more Muslims than any other country. Based on a range of field methods, it shows how Indonesian gay and lesbian identities are shaped by nationalism and globalization. The author examines the history of homosexuality in Indonesia, and then turns to how gay and lesbian identities are lived in everyday Indonesian life, from questions of love, desire, and romance to the places where gay men and lesbian women meet. He also analyses the roles of mass media, the state, and marriage in gay and lesbian identities. He manages to integrate grounded narratives of personal experience in larger theoretical notions of identity and nation, and in so doing to develop perhaps the most sophisticated case study yet written of the ways in which sexual subjectivities reflect, and help shape, national identity.
