This article examines Mickey Chen's queer documentaries and their tactics of subversion, especially in his representation of both positive and negative images and in his formal strategies of mimicking mainstream media. Issues of “visibility” permeate the general landscape of documentary representation of Taiwan's GLBT or the so-called tongzhi (同志, literally “comrade”) community. Thus questions of resistance and subversion must be viewed through the lens of visibility.
