For greater than a decade he has visited Indonesia, either as an anthropologist exploring gender and sexuality and as an activist taken with HIV prevention paintings. Drawing on those reports, he offers a number of in-depth case reviews, essentially about the lives of Indonesian males who time period themselves gay (an Indonesian-language notice that overlaps with, yet doesn't correspond precisely to, the English note “gay”). those case reviews placed interdisciplinary study techniques into perform. they're preceded and by way of theoretical meditations at the most efficient varieties that collaborations among queer reviews and anthropology may possibly take. Boellstorff makes use of theories of time to invite how a version of “coincidence” may possibly open up new chances for cooperation among the 2 disciplines. He additionally juxtaposes his personal paintings with different students’ experiences of Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore to check queer sexualities throughout Southeast Asia. In doing so, he asks how comparability should be understood as a queer venture and the way queerness can be understood as comparative.

The case reports contained in A accident of Desires communicate to questions on the relation of sexualities to nationalism, faith, and globalization. They comprise an exam of zines released through gay Indonesians; an research of bahasa gay—a slang spoken through gay Indonesians that's more and more appropriated in Indonesian pop culture; and an exploration of where of warias (roughly, “male-to-female transvestites”) inside of Indonesian society. Boellstorff additionally considers the strain among Islam and sexuality in gay Indonesians’ lives and a chain of incidents within which teams of guys, pointed out with Islamic fundamentalism, violently attacked gatherings of gay males. jointly, those stories insist at the primacy of empirical research to any queer reports undertaking that desires to talk to the specificities of lived experience.
