Description

In this paper, I intend to look at the cinematic portrayals of male-bodied queerness in gay-themed films from the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. All three contexts have a similar long history of gender-bending and gender-crossing traditions, which still exist in contemporary forms today: the bakla from the Philippines, the kathoey of Thailand, and the waria of Indonesia. The paper will attempt to inter-reference these gender performances with each other, as well as articulate how concepts of genderphobia and homophobia operate within cinematic discourses from across this region.

本文將分析菲律賓、泰國及印尼以男同志為題材的電影中,在男性身上體現的酷兒特質。菲律賓、泰國及印尼這三個國家均有悠長的性別跨越傳統,而這些傳統亦隨著歷史演變,在現代社會以獨特的形態呈現:菲律賓的bakla、泰國的kathoey、及印尼的waria族群。透過三地例子的相互對照,本文嘗試探討不同的性別操演策略及性別體現,以及勾勒出性別恐懼及恐同意識如何透過電影影響該地區的主流性別論述。
