Abstract

This article interrogates Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters through an extensive analysis of Joey Sands, one of the major queer characters within the novel, tracking his movement from Manila’s urban club culture to the politically infused jungle encampment that ends his narrative arc. This article further queries the marked absence of queer sexuality that Joey exhibits once he makes this final spatial transition, contextualizing this curious trajectory as part of a larger encrypted social context that problematically linked queer sexuality with the corruption of Marcos-era economic policy.
