Diasporic Intimacies: Queer Filipinos and Canadian Imaginaries is the first edited volume of its kind, featuring the works of leading scholars, artists, and activists who reflect on the contributions of queer Filipinos to Canadian culture and society.

Addressing a wide range of issues beyond the academy, the authors present a rich and under-studied archive of personal reflections, in-depth interviews, creative works, and scholarly essays. Their trandsdisciplinary approach highlights the need for queer, transgressive, and utopian practices that render visible histories of migration, empire building, settler colonialism, and globalization.

Timely, urgent, and fascinating, Diasporic Intimacies offers an accessible entry point for readers who seek to pursue critically engaged community work, arts education, curatorial practice, and socially inflected research on sexuality, gender, and race in this ever-changing world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Diasporic Intimacies is, without question, an ambitious and important collection that draws together new archives that illuminate the cultural productions, performances, histories, and experiences of queer Filipinos/as in Canada. This formally innovative anthology provides rich material for students and scholars of queer studies, Asian North American studies, performances studies, and diaspora studies." --Denise Cruz, author of Transpacific Femininities: The Making of the Modern Filipina

"This volume offers not just works to be read but triggers to enable and encourage radical thoughts, alternative behavior or attitudes, and progressive ways of being in the world." --Martin F. Manalansan IV, from the afterword
