AIDS and Masculinity in the African City

Robert Wyrod

University of California Press

To understand how AIDS has shaped life in Uganda requires historical perspective on gender, sexuality, and intimate relationships in this region. That is the aim of this chapter; it charts the historical building blocks that have come to define masculinity in contemporary Uganda. It examines how work, authority in the home, and sexuality have all been intertwined in different ways across the twentieth century in Uganda, and how the relationships between these domains of social life were shaped by notions of masculinity.

Keywords:   masculinity, HIV, AIDS, Uganda, Kampala
