Summary Between 2009 and 2011, journalism fellows of the HIV & AIDS Media Project undertook in-depth research looking to write about men, masculinity, and HIV in a new way, and the result is this compendium of articles, blogs, and photo essays. It showcases a diversity of men, each facing a unique context and dealing with sexual health and relationships differently. The book is structured around four central themes-men as lovers, men as partners and fathers, men who have sex with men, and men's relationship to traditional and medical male circumcision-and brings men's varied roles in the HIV epidemic
