Class and Gender Differences in Thai Gay Culture

Uncle Go’s Diverse Responses to His Gay Correspondents

(p.68) Chapter 4 Class and Gender Differences in Thai Gay Culture
First Queer Voices from Thailand

Peter A. Jackson

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter details differences in the forms of sexual culture between groups of middle class and working class. Systematic differences in Uncle Go’s advice to different gay correspondents are related to Go’s perception of the men’s class background, and the different expectations that are placed upon middle class and working class men, respectively. The impact of Uncle Go’s understandings of Thai masculine and feminine gender and sexual cultures on his replies to correspondents is also considered.
