HIV‐related stigma in England: experiences of gay men and heterosexual African migrants living with HIV (pages 472-480)


Focus group research was undertaken in three English cities among Gay and Bisexual men (British and non‐British), heterosexual African women and heterosexual African men, all with diagnosed HIV. It was found that prevalent social discourses of homophobia, racism and xenophobia underpin individuals' experiences of HIV‐related stigma. Members of marginalized communities themselves employ HIV‐related stigma as a governance mechanism to exclude positive people from tightly woven networks of support.
