I n , when Calvin Burdine was awaiting sentencing for allegedly stabbing his gay lover to death, the prosecuting attorney encouraged the jury in his closing remarks to award Burdine the death penalty, rather than life in prison, on the grounds that sending a gay man to prison was akin to sending a kid to a candy store. After 17 minutes of deliberation, the jury obliged and sentenced Burdine to die. His death sentence was later overturned mostly because Burdine's public defender had slept through much of his trial , but the homophobic thinking — that prison is some kind of paradise for gay men — lingers on.

One young man named Rodney, imprisoned for fraud and check-forging, sent me a detailed account of his life so far in prison. He described a litany of brutal rapes, assaults, beatings and, eventually, the total abandonment of his male identity as his only means of survival in the hyper-masculine and often homophobic prison environment. His account suggests that far from being a paradise, prison for gay men can be a living hell.

For many bisexual Black men, a falsified reputation precedes them, and most mainstream images of Black male sexuality do very little to help. Masked by their characters in a video game, the two men——one of whom is married to a woman, the other, dates women——live out their fantasies in simulated bodies via virtual reality from a video game. Stereotypes aside, studies on Black male bisexuality tell a different story. This of course, led to a decline in their psychosocial health. Dating all the way back to slavery in the Americas, many male slaves were the victims of sodomy by male slave owners.
