"Thus, for this roundtable, I have come to think of three types of political recognition of same-sex sexuality. One is recognition of the political economy that makes same-sex erotic relations possible in different locations in Asia. Another is recognition of the constraints of nationalism and statism on such same-sex relations and the political opportunities opened by intercultural same-sex relations between people from different Asian (and other) national cultures. A third type of political recognition involves how Asian queer diasporas within western societies are shaping LGBTSI political agendas in those societies, and how these diasporic communities may also influence agendas for the political recognition of same-sex relationships in Asia."
