Abstract

This thesis looks at the range of gender behavior among Filipino homosexual men in metropolitan Manila. The data presented here was gathered through interviews and observation of Filipino male homosexual members of gay political organizations and relies on queer theory for interpretation. I argue that the range of gender behavior among Filipino homosexual men is the result of the interaction between traditional Filipino notions of homosexuality and the globalization of the homosexual subculture. I look at how feminine and masculine Filipino homosexual males display their gender and how being a masculine Filipino homosexual male has allowed Filipino homosexuals to occupy prestigious economic occupations developed by the global economy.
