This paper describes experiences of sexuality stigma among same-sex attracted men in Zimbabwe and analyses the consequences of such experiences for healthcare seeking. It draws on qualitative research carried out in Harare in 2017, which included in-depth interviews with sixteen gay and bisexual men, and key informant interviews with three representatives of organisations that work with gay men. There were numerous stories about sexuality stigma in the study participants´ social environments, including at home, in local communities and in healthcare facilities. We first offer a description of these and then go on to trace the implications of stigma on the relations between men who have sex with men on the one hand and the healthcare sector on the other. We conceive of stigma as a pushing force that exerts pressure on and in these relations, and identify five types of consequences of this. Stigma works to (1) produce geographical shifts in healthcare, (2) promote private over public care, (3) compartmentalise healthcare (with dedicated providers for queer persons), (4) deprofessionalise care, and (5) block access to appropriate healthcare altogether for some same-sex attracted men. Most of these consequences have negative implications for preventive or treatment-focused HIV programming.
