WS3 queer & multikultural!

Sexual orientation patterns of homosexual and bisexual men in a multicultural society.

In the book “Masculinities”, R.W. Connell describes the predominance of heterosexual men and the subordination of homosexual men by means of concrete practices. From the viewpoint of hegemonic masculinity, homosexuality is equated with femininity. Homosexual and bisexual men are denied an adequate sexuality. WS 3 deals with current gender concepts of homosexual men and how these (concepts) are influenced by immigrant or socio-economic background.

On a discursive level (media, websites, etc.) one finds the tendency to homophobic violence based on ethnicity. Does therefore commence a “war of sub-cultures” (homophobia vs. racism)? Or does one have to ask: Which are the experiences of homosexual and bisexual men belonging to ethnic or religious minority groups?
