Drawing from the fields of ethnographic and sociological studies, cultural activism, public health and film studies, this volume poses new and exciting challenges to queer studies and demonstrates the study of Chinese sexuality as an emergent field currently emanating from multiple disciplines.--Issues related to sexuality have acquired a new visibility in China in the past several years. The growth of religious fundamentalists and global gay discourses, heightened media attention and even more intense censorship, LBGTIQ activist movements, struggles of sex workers, have all contributed to this visibility. There is an urgent need for intellectual work to articulate and analyze the complexity of issues of sexuality, and the ways in which different norms line up and become synonymous with one another, in order to build situated knowledge in strengthening the discursive power of non-normative sexual-subjects-in-alliance. This book showcases the work of emerging and established scholars working mostly outside Euro-America and focuses on cities including Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. It is one of the first sustained collections on Chinese non-normative sexual subjectivities and contemporary sexual politics published in English. It highlights the various ways in which different individuals and communities--including male sex workers, transsexual subjects, lesbians and Indonesian migrants--negotiate with notions of normativity and modernity, fine-tuned according to the different power structures of each context, and making new and different meanings.--This is a key text for students, scholars and cultural workers interested in issues of gender and sexuality, queer studies, Chinese cultures and societies, migration studies, cultural sociology, film and cinema studies, performance studies and pornography. --Yau Ching teaches in the Department of Cultural Studies at Lingnan University, Hong Kong.-
