I am an socio-cultural anthropologist who studies female same-sex relations in the U.S. and globally. My publications include work on Native American female two-spirits and masculine-identified tombois in Indonesia as well as articles on gender, kinship, and political economy in rural West Sumatra. My current focus is on the LGBT movement historically as well as its global impacts on the development of queer subjectivities, with reference to Indonesia and Southeast Asia more generally.
