We conducted a mobile device survey with 276 urban young guys age 19 to 25 in Vancouver and Victoria, and one‑on‑one interviews with 43 of the guys, to help us understand the variety of experiences.

Young men can have an uncomfortable relationship with grief. Socially constructed masculine ideals dictate that men be stoic in the aftermath of loss, most often expressing their sadness and despair as anger. Perhaps because of alignment to such masculine ideals little research has been done to explore young men’s grief – and chronicle the ways […]

Purpose: There is limited research on how young men who trade sex access and experience health services compared to other urban, at-risk young men, and how masculinities might influence these experiences.

There is a nascent, but growing, literature on Southeast Asian youth violence that focuses on the role of acculturation, portraying violence as a problem of maladaptation. However, scholars overlook the ways in which violence holds meaning for the youth who experience it and how violence may be related to racial and gender identity formation. We […]
