 The panel will explore two modes of cultural production within Thai LGBTI and queer communities: the role of gender reassignment in shaping identities and identifications of queer and LGBTI persons, and the privileging of male-based homonormativity. Speakers include Professor Noa Ben-Asher, professor of Law at Pace Law School; Aren Aizura, Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral fellow in the department of Gender and Women’s Studies and the Institute for Research on Women at Rutgers University; Byung’chu Dredge Käng, doctoral student in the department of Anthropology at Emory University; and Hua Boomyapisomparn, lead organizer with the Thai Transgender Alliance.
