Social Work Practice and Men Who Have Sex With Men

Joseph, Sherry

Description
Society at large tends to marginalize homosexuality even though men who have sex with men have always existed within it. This book is a significant contribution in the endeavour to understand this segment of society and its concerns.

Employing a blend of qualitative and quantitative methods, Sherry Joseph analyses the extensive data collected through formal networks of such people in Kolkata, and places them in a socio-ecological perspective. He shows how the lives of men who have sex with men are very stressful in their efforts to fit into an environment that is predominantly homophobic, heterosexist, heterocentrist and where heterosexuality is the prescribed norm.

The book argues that understanding the stress that men who have sex with men experience and their coping strategies will assist sympathetic groups and professionals to work with this community.
