Contentment or containment? Consumption and the lesbian and gay community in Singapore

By Andrew Lek and Simon Obendorf

Abstract

This article explores how gay men and lesbians in Singapore appear content to prioritise availability of consumer goods and services, lifestyle comfort and the availability of artistic representations over civil and political rights and social/political change. Contentment here acts as a powerful strategy of political and social containment of gays and lesbians who continue exist under the shadow of governmental erasure, censorship and oppression
