Quotes

" Homosexuality has always, and will always, pose a problem for hegemonic masculinity. Homosexuality represents one of the biggest challenges to masculinity because it refuses to conform to those dominant ideas about what is a man, how he should behave and whether there is only one way of understanding masculinity. The fact of the matter is that men do not stop being men because of the sex of the person with whom they sleep. "
Unsettling Masculinity in the Caribbean- Facing a Future without Guarantees, Linden Lewis
