Offers a compelling view of sexual and gender difference through the everyday lives of tombois and their girlfriends ('femmes') in the city of Padang, West Sumatra. It demonstrates how these same-sex Indonesian couples negotiate transgressive identities and desires and how their experiences speak to the struggles and desires of sexual and gender minorities everywhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An impressive book which straddles ethnography, gender and queer theory, and Indonesia and the world. . . . A terrific accomplishment, worth perservering through the sometimes opaque academic language, for its rich insights.-- "New Zealand Journal of Asian Studies"
Not only is [this book] rich in ethnographic data specific to Padang, but it also contextualizes the findings within a wider Indonesian, South East Asian, and global context. At a theoretical level, it unsettles conventional notions of traditional and modern sexualities and normative ideas of gender. A rewarding and engaging read, carefully referenced, and with complete bibliography and index, Evelyn Blackwood's latest work will surely become essential reading for all students and scholars interested in this field.-- "South East Asia Research"
