People like us : sexual minorities in Singapore

by Lo, Joseph / Huang, Guoqin

  • (0)

This is a ground-breaking book on a previously taboo topic in generally strait-laced Singapore. The subject of homosexuality is given serious and thoughtful attention. Various gay- related issues are discussed, including identity, culture, religion rights, responsibilities, and theatre. Read about lighter topics such as what it means to be a "potato queen" -- a gay Asian male who prefers gay Caucasian males -- in Singapore. These topics are not only discussed from an academic point of view, but more significantly, from the experiences of the ordinary gay person. This book provides a perspective on what it means to be gay in Singapore at the turn of the millennium. This book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of civil society in Singapore as well as the increasingly visible sexual minority culture in Singapore. It is a sign of society's maturity when what was previously considered a sensitive topic can now be discussed with candor, honesty, dignity and occasionally, humour.
