Our speaker is Victoria G. Amos. She is an Alice Brown Scholar and PhD candidate in Social Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh, currently being sponsored by the Institute of Philippine Culture at Ateneo de Manila University as a Visiting Research Associate. She received an Integrated Master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2019.

In the webinar, she will talk about two research projects. She will talk about her fieldwork conducted with UP Babaylan in 2018, which culminated in her dissertation entitled “Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen: Navigating Validity and Authenticity amongst LGBTQ+ Youth in Urban Philippines.” She will also talk about her ongoing research, which seeks to examine the specific discourses and lived experiences of queer Filipinos in relation to the concepts of “coming out,” “being out,” and “LGBTQ+ Pride,” engaging with a broader range of demographics and methodologies in the process of data gathering/dissemination.
