Reconsidering homophobia globally: A perspective from Hong Kong

This paper reconsiders existing frameworks of homophobia in queer Asian studies by highlighting how they are complicated by globalising processes. Specifically, it formulates a class critique that fosters productive tensions between global queering discourses and a Chinese homophobic order affecting Hong Kong and other ethnic Chinese societies. Based on field research on Hong Kong gay men’s subjective constructions of homophobia, it highlights an unequal cosmopolitan condition that enables the middle-class research participants to see, while excluding their working-class counterparts from seeing, Hong Kong as a gay-friendly city. Drawing on the geography of sexuality and the sociology of class and mobility, this paper moreover argues that Hong Kong is a significant site for understanding multidirectional flows of queer globalization.
