Queer Feminist Kinship: An Intersectional Approach to Activism and Community in Chengdu, China (working title)

Dr Fabio Gygi


After reading English and Drama as an undergraduate, I trained as a teacher and spent four years teaching in China. Living in Beijing enabled me to gain insights into social and political life and participate in the feminist community in China. These experiences inspired me to come to SOAS for postgraduate study in Social Anthropology. I am a queer feminist passionate about challenging heteronormative, patriarchal systems that oppress women, LGBTQ+ people, racialised and marginalised groups. I have lived in mainland China, South Korea, and Southern Africa.
