Good daughters: Three different ways of being Korean American queer women

Grace Chung, Ramona Faith Oswald, Angela Wiley

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Twenty-five Korean American queer women were interviewed in-depth about their family relationships. Field notes and a brief demographic survey were used to supplement interview data. Results indicate three different profiles of Korean American queer women: international students, 1.5 ethnic enclave residents, and 2nd generation suburbanites. Though all seek to be good daughters, their accomplishment of this goal depends upon their family ideologies as well as residential community context.
