Creative City Singapore and the Illiberal Pragmatics of Sexuality
with Audrey Yue

Associate Professor in Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne

Singapore is among the remaining few countries that retains its draconian anti-sodomy laws. However, Singapore is also celebrated globally as one of the new exciting cities of gay Asia.

Yue examines this paradoxical phenomenon, where homosexuality remains criminalized yet is at the same time promoted through a cultural liberalization.
