This paper delineates this presence by analyzing the issues of identity and community among fifty gay Filipino men in the city in their attempts to institutionalize or organize themselves. Through excerpts from life history inter- views and field observations, I explore the ways in which being “gay” and being “Filipino” are continually being shaped by historical events.
