Making masculinity: Negotiations of gender presentation among Latino gay men
Making masculinity: Negotiations of gender presentation among Latino gay men | SpringerLink
Many studies of masculinity examine the experiences of White men, men of color and White gay men, but often do not incorporate the experiences of gay men of color. This study builds on recent work on Latino gay immigrants by focusing on the experiences of US-born Latino gay men, who have received relatively scant attention by researchers. Drawing from ethnographic findings of gay Latino social circles, this study examines how gay Latino men negotiate boundaries of masculinity. These findings have implications for better understanding and addressing racial and class schisms within the larger LGBT movement. For the most part, I consider myself masculine.
Latino Gay and Bisexual Men’s Relationships with Non-Gay-Identified Men Who Have Sex With Men
Try out PMC Labs and tell us what you think. Learn More. This study investigated relationships between Latino gay-identified men in metropolitan New York City and their non-gay-identified male partners. A majority of participants reported having had sex with heterosexually identified men, and in many cases, the relationship was sustained over time. We found mixed results concerning an attitude sometimes attributed to Latinos that sexual orientation is defined by sexual role, with receptive MSM seen as gay and insertive MSM seen as straight.
I wish you had started earlier though. White girls should learn to kiss and cuddle black men even years before they have intercourse so they grow up knowing their place is to please superior black masters. Only then will blacks have sexual equality and finally break the sexual racism barriers.
