AIDS has been a devastating plague in much of sub-Saharan Africa, but the long-term implications for gender and sexuality are just emerging. This book tackles this issue head-on and examines how AIDS has altered the ways in which masculinity is lived in Uganda—a country known as Africa’s great AIDS success story. Based on over a decade of ethnographic research in an urban slum community called Bwaise, this book reveals the persistence of masculine privilege in the age of AIDS and the implications such privilege has for combating AIDS across the African continent.
