Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to review the general changes in sexuality and gender during the recent 20 years in China, and analyze the main political, social, program-oriented and individual forces and contexts within which all these changes occur. The concept of shehui xingbie emphasizes the unequal power relationship between women and men, and is used to challenge the patriarchal Chinese society. This concept, however, is strongly marked as "female" and "heterosexual", and has neglected its relationship with sexuality, the power relationship between heterosexuality and homosexuality, and excludes lesbian gay bisexual transgender queer (LGBTQ) issues. Partly to challenge the current framework of shehui xingbie, the chapter mainly focuses on the LGBTQ aspects of the conceptual framework of gender in China, in addition to male and female sexuality. The chapter discusses the decades since the Cultural Revolution, focusing on the changes of sexuality and its social and cultural contexts.

Keywords:lesbian gay bisexual transgender queer (LGBTQ); sexual transformations; shehui xingbie
