Mark Johnson, who lived in the in the southern Philippines as a child of missionary parents, undertook ethnographic fieldwork in the predominantly Muslim, Tausug-speaking town of Jolo, Sulu. His somewhat difficult-to-read book is focused on ethnic and post-colonial national identities within uneven globalization as much as it is about sexuality and gender.

Beauty and Power: Transgendering and Cultural Transformation in the Southern Philippines. This article explores male transgendering and same-sex sexualities in the southern Philippines. In particular, the article focuses on the translocal context of nonmainstream genders and sexual identities. I describe a range of homosexual encounters and elaborate on transactional scenarios, each of which has significant implications for the way in which the respective partners are gendered.

New York: New York University Press, 1997.

This compelling study of gender and sexual diversity in the Southern Philippines addresses general questions about the relationship between the making of gender and sexualities, the politics of national and ethnic identities and processes of cultural transformation in a world of contract labourers and transnational consumers. The book focuses, in particular, on the meaning and experience of local 'gays' -- transvestite/transgender-homosexual men -- who are at once celebrated as purveyors of beauty (defined in terms of a global American otherness) and valorized as impotent men and defiled women. In short, America functions both as a sign of their abjected status and as a space for imagining and reformulating various gendered identities.This innovative work -- one of the first ethnographic studies to be published in the aftermath of the region's civil unrest -- will be of interest to anyone working on gender, the body and sexuality. Not only does it extend the boundaries of cross-cultural studies of non-mainstream genders and sexualities by directly engaging the entanglement of local sensibilities with global images and discourse, but it also demonstrates that there is nothing ambiguous about ambiguity -- gendered, sexual or otherwise. Rather, this ambiguity is the specific product of different historical relations of power through which various cultural subjects are created and re-create themselves.
