A Sexual Fields approach to Sexual Racism: A cross-sectional examination of overseas-born Asian Men who have sex with Men’s (MSM) experiences of individual and collective erotic life.

posted on 2022-02-16, 22:34 authored by SHENG YANG GENE LIM
Sexual racism is linked to poor life and health outcomes for overseas-born Asian-born MSM. However, we do not fully understand many of these associations. This thesis develops current understandings of sexual racism by looking at its long-term impacts and individual responses to it. It also engages with the broader question of how intimate racism figures into more ‘mainstream’ forms of racial discrimination.
