“This on-line literary journal comes out in a time of continuous and emerging efforts

of fighting for LGBTIQ rights in Southeast Asia and after the groundbreaking legalization

of same-sex marriage in the US that has effected more resounding trivialized and

dogmatized modes of speaking about homosexuality in the region, often climaxing to

a decentered view of homosexuality, i.e. away from same-sex desire. While it is true

that this “homosexual turn” is generative in ways that provide chances for homosexuals

to claim their identity no matter how constrained, the vigilance in the region to

persecute homosexuals is still, and shamelessly apparent.”
