Between 2009 and 2011 journalism fellows of the HIV & AIDS Media Project researched whether it is possible to write about men, masculinity and HIV in a new way. The result is this collection of articles, blogs and photo essays that focus on men's varied roles in the HIV epidemic.

Includes contributions by Willemien Brummer, Lungi Langa, Thabisile Dlamini, Pieter van Zyl, Mthetho Tshemese and Wilson Johwa.

"The journalism in this book rises above the norm, bringing us voices we do not easily hear, upsetting stereotypes and generalities. It challenges editors and reporters to think again about how they can and should cover such issues." Anton Harber
