More About This Title (Un)covering Men


Between 2009 and 2011, journalism fellows of the HIV & AIDS Media Project undertook in-depth research looking to write about men, masculinity, and HIV in a new way, and the result is this compendium of articles, blogs, and photo essays. It showcases a diversity of men, each facing a unique context and dealing with sexual health and relationships differently. The book is structured around four central themes—men as lovers, men as partners and fathers, men who have sex with men, and men’s relationship to traditional and medical male circumcision—and brings men’s varied roles in the HIV epidemic to the fore.
