Biopolitics, citizenship and inequalities in HIV Assemblages

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract / Description of output

Di Feliciantonio and Brown offer an important overview of key research areas for the geographies of PrEP, TasP and undetectabitily and consider what matters for the lives of gay and bisexual men. I offer two areas of further consideration. Firstly, I suggest that rather than setting the biopolitical critiques of PrEP and TasP as at odds with grassroots activism, sexual pleasure and subjectivities, that these particular forms of biosexual activism are indeed central to subject formation and sexual practices and are constitutive of the other within HIV assemblages. Secondly, I highlight the need to consider inequalities more directly both within the context of national borders in relation to jurisdictional health policy, implementation and access, and within gay communities themselves in relation to intersectional and embodied identities.
