Black Trans Men on Health at the Intersections


Poteat, Tonia & Follins, Lourdes Dolores (2016). Black Trans Men on Health at the Intersections.. Follins, Lourdes Dolores & Lassiter, Jonathan Mathias (Eds.) (pp. 73-86). Lanham, Md.: Rowman & Littlefield.


Black LGBT Health in the United States: The Intersection of Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation focuses on the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of health, and considers both risk and resiliency factors for the Black LGBT population. Contributors to this collection intimately understand the associations between health and intersectional anti-Black racism, heterosexism, homonegativity, biphobia, transphobia, and social class. This collection fills a gap in current scholarship by providing information about an array of health issues like cancer, juvenile incarceration, and depression that affect all subpopulations of Black LGBT people, especially Black bisexual-identified women, Black bisexual-identified men, and Black transgender men.
