Queer Comrades bok cover_nPlease join us to launch Hongwei Bao’s new book on queer China, the first book to look at gay identity and queer activism in the People’s Republic of China from a cultural studies perpective.

Hongwei Bao’s book is a not just a study of ‘queer China’ through the lens of male homosexuality; it also examines the PRC’s socialist legacy and considers how the country is undergoing rapid transformations under the influence of transnational capitalism.  He examines queer films, fiction and personal diaries as well as research within the urban gay communities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

Hongwei assesses  China’s socialist legacy in shaping sexual identity, queer popular culture and political activism.  His intelligence, engagement and sunny humour shine though his writing.

Dr Hongwei Bao is Assistant Professor in Media Studies at the University of Nottingham, UK. He holds a PhD in Gender and Cultural Studies from the University of Sydney, Australia.
