Abstract:

"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. It maintains that helping professions like social work can help - through various interventions and by adopting individual, group and community approaches - this population and create a better and more tolerant environment for them."--Jacket.
