Psychologist Gregory Herek, a professor at the University of California, Davis, provides definitions and explanations of various ideas and terms related to homophobia and heterosexism, as well as links to several of his articles on the topic. His site also provides multiple resources on the connection between homophobia and HIV, and the impact of homophobia on HIV prevention.
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
