As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Sex Therapist, and Doctoral Student in Human Sexuality, I am most interested in the intersection of sexuality, gender, and ethnicity. I am currently working on an article that examines the historical/colonial constructs of homophobia and the impact on Latino and African American men who have sex with men (MSM). My dissertation will qualitatively examine the experiences of Latino and African American MSM to look for overarching themes in understanding the intersectionality of identities. Future areas of research interest include: therapists’ preparation to work with sexual/gender and ethnic minorities, sex therapy with LGBTQ ethnically diverse couples, and testing therapeutic interventions that help African American and [email protected] LGBTQ integrate ethnic, gender, and sexual identities.
