About this Item

179 pp., bibliography. In this book, Mr. Lau Hoi-Leung presents a pioneering ethnographic study on how the roles and perceptions of gay men are constructed in Hong Kong. Through his participant-observation, Lau discovers the mechanisms in which sissy gay men experience "double marginalization" in the Hong Kong society in general and the gay community in particular. By reading this ethnographic work, readers can understand the internal dynamics and interactions of the present Hong Kong gay community, which is fundamental to explore the possibility in the creation of a discrimination-free social environment. 0.0.
