Queer Southeast Asia 1

About

This curatorial literary project comes out in a time of continuous and emerging efforts of fighting for LGBTIQ rights in Southeast Asia and after the groundbreaking legalization of same-sex marriage in the US that has effected more resounding trivialized and dogmatized modes of speaking about homosexuality in the region, often climaxing to a decentered view of homosexuality, i.e. away from same-sex desire. While it is true that this “homosexual turn” is generative in ways that provide chances for homosexuals to claim their identity no matter how constrained, the vigilance in the region to persecute homosexuals is still, and shamelessly apparent. Moreover, this spirited undertaking is geared up to queer Southeast Asia, which means to deploy determined resistance against normalized regimes of power that roguishly transform defiant or non-conformist behaviors into manipulatable characterological types misleadingly collectivized and pathologized as “gay lifestyle.”
