Héctor Carrillo

Héctor Carrillo’s current research explores the sexualities of straight-identified men who are sexually interested in both women and men, as part of a larger project on the paradoxes of sexual identity as a social construction. Carrillo is the author of two books: “The Night Is Young: Sexuality in Mexico in the Time of AIDS” and “Pathways of Desire: The Sexual Migration of Mexican Gay Men.” A past chair of the sociology of sexualities section of the American Sociological Association, Carrillo also served as co-chair of the social, behavioral and economic science track of the XVII International AIDS Conference. Carrillo is a professor of sociology and gender and sexuality studies in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.
