This is the first book in English to analyse the stunning rise of cultures of dissident sexuality in Taiwan during the 1990s. It approaches the queer sexualities represented in recent Taiwanese fiction, film and public culture as dynamic formations that combine local knowledge with globalizing discourses on gay and lesbian identity to produce sexualities that are multiple, shifting and inherently hybrid. The book challenges the Eurocentrism of much queer theory to date. Consistently critical of essentializing accounts of `Chinese' culture, it highlights some of the important ways in which Taiwanese formations of dissident sexuality differ from the familiar Euro-American formations.
