Abstract

Macho dancing in the gay bars of the Philippines is performed by male heterosexual dancers and is a symptom of the discursive cultural politics of the Philippines in transition from the Marcos dictatorship to today's multinational capitalism. The macho dancer's body can also be read as representing actual shifts in the cultural politics of the Filipino nation-state.
