Hey everyone! ::waves::
My name is Anthony and welcome to my little corner of the World Wide Web.
I’ve been gone for a minute, but now I’m back with the jumpoff! lol
But seriously, I had a blog eons ago (2003-2004…back when they were called online journals), but had to stop to focus on my education. It’s now time for me to step back up to the plate. I hope to contribute to a larger conversation working towards a model of healthy sexuality in the United States and beyond.
I just finished a masters degree in Sexuality Studies, hence the name of the site (yes you can make a living studying sex and sexuality, I’ll explain all that later). I’ve been doing (formal) social science based sexuality research for about six years now. My research interests are broad but generally involve the intersection of race, gender and sexuality (e.g. masculinity). I am particularly interested in how media shapes people’s identities concerning their race and sexuality.
I embrace many identities (black, gay, male, left-handed, etc.), but I try not to let the labels constraint me (you shouldn’t either). I’m just as curious to see how this little social experiment turns out; so sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
