My PhD research project seeks to understand how projects by gender equality NGOs and LGBT rights NGOs aimed at empowering the marginalized become sites of negotiation and contestation in contemporary China. It critically positions NGOs and NGO workers at the conjunction of state policies, market orientations and transnational flows of capital and ideas. My Master thesis looks into cooperative marriage  - an intimate alliance and queer kinship between gay men and lalas (women who love women) in mainland China - its practices and implications for Chinese queer communities.
