Description:
With gay and bisexual men, health promotion can be influenced by; low self esteem, self-hatred (internalised homophobia), discrimination and oppression (external homophobia), isolation or fear of rejection (by family, friends or sexual partner). Other influences may be poverty, homelessness, alcohol or drug use or mental health issues. The individual may also be a survivor of child sexual abuse or adult rape or sexual assault (see GMHP Annual Report 2002). Social support and self-worth are important factors for gay and bisexual men’s health. This issue was addressed in a recent comprehensive study of 1290 men: the report ‘Vital Statistics Ireland -findings from the all-Ireland gay sex survey 2000’, which highlights that one in ten men (12% of total sample) ‘wished they were not attracted to men’ and over half of these felt lonely (Gay Health Network, Sigma Research, ECAHB 2002).
