Abstract
  • This thesis discusses regulation and deregulation of homosexuality and gender identity issues in post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan drawing on theories of political and medical regulation of sexuality and gender. The thesis draws on experiences of activists working on lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights in Kyrgyzstan and personal activist experience of the author. The thesis discusses how political instability and dependence of Kyrgyzstan on external funding created opportunities for organizing for lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights despite lack of support by majority of citizens.
