A Cantonese-Tauiwi queer man reflects on his lived experiences as a means to explore the intersection of Asian-ness and queerness in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Queer Asian communities in Aotearoa New Zealand can suffer erasure caused by the dominance of whiteness in queer spaces. Written as a deliberate challenge to this invisibility, author Sidney Gig-Jan Wong 黃吉贊 reflects on his life and upbringing in order to explore the intersections of his own identity and ongoing coming out experience, and also highlight the perspectives of a minoritized community.

Ideal reading for students of LGBTQIA+ studies and Asian studies, as well as anthropology and sociology, this book draws on queer theory and the author's life in a way that personalises concepts and highlights the humanity in the social sciences.
