Bangkok, Thailand - Research Trip
My research led me to a cruising spot in Lumphini Park where at 6pm sharp, everyone (including those jogging) abruptly stop at attention while the Thai national anthem is played.
Singapore - Research June-July 2016
After living in Singapore for five years, thinking that I knew about all of the queer spaces, I found one in an unlikely place: the train station near the kampung Melayu.
Taipei, Taiwan - Research Trip
It was great to be reunited with so many amazing and talented friends in Taipei especially Bao Dao, with whom I shot videos, counted queers, and ate dumplings.
San Francisco, CA, USA - Research Trip
I spent about two months in the Bay Area with Jose de los Reyes and Manae Ross shooting video at the Sutro Ruins and going to the Lex which will also unfortunately disappear soon.
Major Research Funding Awarded
I am happy to learn that I was awarded research funding from Lasalle College of the Arts for my practice-based research entitled Queer spatial production and utopic potentiality. I will begin the travel and research for this work in June 2014.
