中文摘要
本研究從地緣社會網絡關係之觀點出發,以地緣位置空間、社會文化演進,以及社會網絡互動各面向之詮釋為議題核心,並加上通訊網路科技運用之時代背景,勾勒出高雄年長同志生命歷程週期之真實同志空間、同志生活經驗及社會支持。以立意抽樣方式藉由Scruff此社會網絡型社交應用程式找到八位受訪者,受訪者都曾在異性戀主宰的社會文化下成長,都走過具勞工草根的愛河左岸尋找同志朋友的懷舊時代,也經歷過美國大兵與外籍船員加入的都會同志文化。但隨著通訊科技演進,他們藉雲端介面互動以如同化妝舞會的保守謹慎方式來自我呈現,並在審美同質化的條件下尋找同伴,藉由網路毗鄰性與實際位置的即時交流,呈現出社交-性慾展演交織下的地緣位置空間,加入社會支持維度,藉由實際現身及彼此交流來獲得社會支持,擺脫社交孤立的負面刻板印象。值得一提的,因為同志婚姻的合法,讓原本只來自虛擬或私密實體空間支持外,也擴大到社會及國家層面的社會支持,扭轉過去異性戀婚姻時代朋友比伴侶重要的現象,這種全面性的社會支持更顯示出此本土年長男同志相關研究發現之可貴價值。
英文摘要
This research starts from the perspective of the geo-social relationships, takes the interpretation of territorial embeddedness, societal embeddedness, and network embeddedness as the cores of an analysis, and then with the background of communication network technology usage outlines each life course of gay space, life experience, and social support. Through Scruff, a social network-based social application, the study queries eight interviewees to explore the meaning of the Kaohsiung gay community ecology and living space under the evolution of the current times via purposive sampling. The interviewees previously had the desire to meet someone attractive in the dark space when being young, went through the nostalgic era of looking for gay friends on the left bank of the Love River with the laborers, and also experienced the urban gay culture when joined by American soldiers and foreign sailors. However, with the evolution of communication technology, they started to present themselves in a conservative and cautious way like a masquerade through online interaction and have sought companions under the condition of aesthetic homogeneity. The real-time communication between the proximity of the Internet and location allows multiple overlapping of physical and virtual dating spaces. In addition to presenting the geographical location space interwoven by “socio-sexualized” behaviors and finally gaining positive social support by actually appearing and communicating with each other, the elderly gay men have gradually gotten rid of the negative stereotypes of social isolation. Furthermore, because of the legality of gay marriage, it was originally only supported by virtual or private physical space, but has now expanded to legal social support at the social and national levels. After same-sex friends can legally become partners, this has importantly reversed the phenomenon that friends are more important than partners in past heterosexual marriages. Such comprehensive levels of social support are still not available in other Asian countries, and the legal gay marriage phenomenon shows the value of this LGBTQ research on elderly gay men in Kaohsiung.
