Abstract

This chapter examines ambivalent perception of sexual subject categories among HIV prevention workers in the north of West Bengal, India. Based on ethnographic fieldwork the chapter queries views of modernity as associated with increasingly individualised aspirations for personal sexual identity and examined how men who have sex with men in the context studied resisted contemporary categories of sexuality. The chapter raises broader issues concerning globalisation in India and the subject categories used in international HIV prevention.
