Study Counters Stereotypes of Black Men

A new study by researchers at Yale School of Public Health and George Mason University provides an in-depth look at the positive aspects of sexual encounters among black men who have sex with men (MSM) versus MSM of other races in the United States. Findings from this study, led by Sarah Calabrese, an associate research scientist at Yale and former CIRA postdoctoral fellow, counter dehumanizing stereotypes of black MSM and demonstrate that patterns of pleasure, affection, and love are similar regardless of race.
