Research title: Becoming a queer migrant in Kazakhstan

Research Summary

My PhD is funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council, through the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences, and is provisionally titled "Becoming a Queer Migrant in Kazakhstan: Choices, Pathways, Identities." 

Through a participant-centred, participatory exploration of pre-movement queer migration decision-making with queer migrants and aspiring queer migrants in Kazakhstan, I aim to shed new light on queer migratory aspiration and destination choice not just in Kazakhstan but also across other countries and regions.
