The effects of three interventions deed to reduce sexual risk among Filipina female bar workers FBWs were compared with each other and with usual care nonintervention. The interventions were developed iteratively by a community-based participatory research CBPR partnership comprising lay community members, organizational representatives including nongovernmental organizationsand academic researchers from the United States and the Philippines.
Contemporary popular culture stereotypes Filipina women as sex workers, domestic laborers, mail order brides, and caregivers. Gina K. Integrating a transnational feminist analysis of globalized gendered labor with a consideration of queer cultural politics, Velasco envisions forms of feminist and queer diasporic belonging, while simultaneously foregrounding nationalist movements as vital instruments of struggle.
With its uniquely nuanced documentation and theorization of multiple, competing nationalisms, this book clear-sightedly s, on the one hand, for heteropatriarchy within the Filipino diaspora and, on the other hand, the limits of queer white definitions of desire and liberation.
She develops smart and well-written close readings of these materials, and in doing so, she reveals how Filipinx American cultural producers critique the heteropatriarchal nation in the Philippines and US. Publication of this book was supported by funding from Gettysburg College.
