Reviews

“This work and its two companion books on the Latinx and Asian and Pacific Islander LGBT populations make important contributions that advance the fields of race, sexuality, social justice, and their intersections.” (Patricia Hill Collins, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, USA, and Charles Phelps Taft Emeritus Professor, University of Cincinnati, USA)

“Sex and Sexuality gives us both a wide-lens and closely personal view of the Black LGBT community with unmatched data and an engaging writing style.  It is an essential addition to any reading list on race and sexuality.” (Mary Pattillo, Harold Washington Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Northwestern University, USA)

“Straight forward, well-researched, dispelling myths and offering new insights, this highly-accessible resource is much-needed.” (Marcus Anthony Hunter, Associate Professor, Sociology & African American Studies, University of California at Los Angeles, USA)
