Abstract

This thesis is housed under the Queer Men’s Desire and the Digital Life of HIV Prevention Technologies research project (P.I.s Rory Crath, PHD Smith College School for Social Work and Cristian Rangel, University of Toronto). The project investigates the meeting of digital social/sexual networking technologies and biomedical HIV prevention technologies in the lives of gay identifying men, and trans/men who have sex with men (hereafter, GM)—studying what types of sexual/sexual-health actors are created in this novel historical moment. The thesis contributes to the project by reinvigorating and piloting the arts based research methodology of body mapping, a promising methodological approach to understanding GM’s embodied experiences as they are shaped in a complex field of social forces, using theories of embodiment arising out of recent trans and queer of color scholarship.
