Overview

Here is an important work that uniquely focuses on both gay/queer-self-identified men from diverse minority communities (African American, Latino, Native American, Asian and Pacific Islander) and men of these ethnic communities who have sex with men but are not gay/queer-self-identified. Each section of this edited book is devoted to a particular health issue affecting minority MSM, and consists of one or more scholarly chapters that address the particular issue.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jesus Ramirez-Valles, MPH, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is a collection of articles on health issues, mainly from a psychological perspective, of ethnic minority men who have sex with men.
Purpose: The purpose is to go beyond the narrow view of HIV/AIDS into the health of men who have sex with men. This is a welcome contribution to the field, given the limited research on this population. Unfortunately, with a couple of exceptions, most of the chapters are on HIV/AIDS and from a somewhat limited psychological perspective.
Audience: The editor and the contributing authors bring scientific and community-level expertise to the book and many of them are well established researchers. The audience includes undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners.
Features: The book covers a variety of issues related to HIV/AIDS, such as stigma, substance use, disclosure, and identity. Unlike other compilations, this one includes narratives and cases from community members. Yet, the book does little to look beyond HIV/AIDS and its psychology.
Assessment: The strength of the book lies in its focus on ethnic minorities, a perspective not available in other books on gay men's health. A weakness is its narrow focus on psychological issues and HIV/AIDS.
