Queer Bangkok

Peter A. Jackson

Hong Kong University Press

This book examines the roles of the market and the media, notably cinema and the Internet, in the recent transformations of Bangkok's queer communities. It considers the ambiguous consequences that the growing commodification and mediatization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender/transsexual (LGBT) lives have had for queer rights in Thailand. The chapter also considers Bangkok queer cultures until mid-2008, just before the onset of the global financial crisis in the second half of that year and before the intensification of political conflicts between supporters and opponents of the September 2006 military coup that toppled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

Keywords:   market, media, cinema, Internet, Bangkok, queer communities, LGBT, queer cultures
