Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora



Author: Martin F. Manalansan IV 

GLOBAL DIVAS is a vivid ethnography of the global and transnational dimensions of gay identity as lives by Filipino immigrants in New York City. Martin Manalansan IV describes how Filipino gay immigrants, like many queers of color, are creating alternative paths to queer modernity and citizenship. Manalansan locates diasporic, transnational, and global faces of gay and other queer identities within a framework of quotidian struggles ranging from everyday domesticity to public engagements with racialized and gendered images to life--threatening situations involving AIDS.
