Hey guys!

As you probably know, this year I pursue an masters degree in Medical Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Amsterdam. My thesis project examines some aspects of the sexual health of Dutch Caribbean men who live in the Netherlands and have sex with other men. In the context of this research project, I want to talk with gay and bisexual guys (and everything in between) from the Dutch Caribbean about attitudes towards sex and safe sex practices. If you would like to talk to me, or know someone who might, please let me know. It will be anonymous and won’t take much of your time. Please also feel free to share this message on Twitter and Facebook.


Thanks so much for your help!

Film: In The Grayscale ***

In The Grayscale 

Chile – Drama [2015]

A story about a man who looks for a way to find himself and how to connect the two aspects of his life (his family and his lover). I liked the story and the symbolism in this movie, but felt it came up short in the end. It has a major open ending which leaves you exasperated with the main characters indecision.


Film: Silverlake Life: The View From Here *****

Silverlake Life: The View From Here 

U.S.A. [1993] Documentary.

I watched this documentary years ago while studying in the US for my HIV/AIDS class. At the time they only had the DVD available for watching in the library at the university. I found myself crying my eyes out while sitting and watching this film in the library. It was both beautiful and horrific at the same time. I recommend watching it when in a stable emotional state.


Film: Any Day Now ****

Any Day Now [2012]

A film about a gay couple in the late 70′s that decide to take care of a boy in a time when gays had limited to no equal rights in the United States. The characters are well acted and the plot flows well. I found some of the trial parts in the film hard to watch but was very moved by the ending. Overall a very nice film if you are in the mood for a good drama.
