Homophobia amongst ethnic minorities

Yet another call for research help, this time from Dr Andrew Kam-Tuck Yip, an Associate Professor & Reader with the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham.

He is currently working on a project funded by the European Commission, researching the issues of homophobia and fundamental rights from the perspectives of heterosexuals, as well as lesbians and gay men, from ethnic minorities. His project is one of the four being conducted in different
European countries. More information from citidive.

At this stage, he would like to conduct group or individual interviews with lesbians and gay men from African, Chinese, African-Caribbean, and South Asian communities, across the UK, in order to explore what they think about homophobia and sexual equality legislations.

This project is important because it gives voices to lesbian and gay people from ethnic minority communities.

If you’d like to get involved or help, contact Andrew directly via Andrew.Yip@nottingham.ac.uk
