Please join us for the next online RAS Salon on the 20th of July!

This talk briefly introduces the development of 'comrade literature' (tongzhi wenxue 同志文学) in mainland China since the 1990s. It highlights key authors such as Cui Zi'en, Mu Cao and Wang Xiaobo, as well as key literary works including East Palace, West Palace, Beijing Story and Pink Affairs.

The talk also highlights the pivotal role of the Internet in facilitating an online reading and writing community, as well as the online transnational Boys' Love culture in generating a local danmei fan fiction genre. Overall, the talk makes a case for the role of literary production and consumption in shaping LGBTQ identities and communities in mainland China.
