Abstract or Description

This article explores male transgendering and same-sex sexualities in the southern Philippines. In particular, the article focuses on the translocal context of nonmainstream genders and sexual identities. I describe a range of homosexual encounters and elaborate on transactional scenarios, each of which has significant implications for the way in which the respective partners are gendered. In addition to these transactional forms, I discuss the various real and imagined worlds with which they are associated and within which they are set. The article thus challenges the trope of cultural particularity in anthropological accounts of gender and sexual diversity, arguing that gender and sexual identities are the product of relations that extend beyond any particular locale, [gender, sexuality, translocality, cartographies, cultural imagination]
