Towards Full Citizenship:
A Preliminary Checklist of Hong Kong Gay/Lesbian-related Works
向光明 : 香港同志情形的參考書/片目
Compiled by Alex Spence and 郭桂榮, Kwok Kwai Wing
Towards Full Citizenship is a bibliographic overview of the LGTBQ situation in an Asian context. More than 1,600 references specific to Hong Kong LGTBQ are included, covering a broad range of disciplines and roughly half a century of sources, up to mid-2016.
Information is included to track works in literature and the arts, academic studies in books and journals, general-interest magazines and newspapers, surveys and polls, films, television reports, and websites.
The compilation includes both Chinese- and English-language works, and also items by anti-gay-rights writers.
Arrangement is primarily by subject, with some sections (such as newspaper articles and films) given chronologically for a sense of historical progression.
About the compilers
Alex Spence is a career librarian and sometime ESL teacher (master’s, University of
Toronto; CTEFLA, UK) who has written articles on LGBTQ issues (Library Quarterly, Public Libraries) and compiled a number of LGBTQ bibliographies and indexes, including Gay Canada, a bibliography (2009) found on the Saskatchewan Resources for Sexual Diversity website, hosted by the University of Saskatchewan Library.
Kwok Kwai Wing, Spence’s late life partner, was a Hong Kong native whose insights and language instruction over so many long and happy years made this project possible.
