Theorizing Diasporic Queer Digital Homes: Identity, Home and New Media
Diaspora, queer, identity, new media
In this essay, I argue that, for the most part, hybridity is a state of confusion or complication rather than a state of empowerment. Because diasporic individuals experience a constant state of flux, the state of hybridity can be considered a fluid state of being that allows contestation, negotiation, and (re)creation of cultural identities. Consequently, diasporic individuals—particularly queer diasporic people—carve out physical, psychological, or cyber locations (homes) where they exist simultaneously within their host, diasporic, and queer cultures.
