In this update of a case study of sexuality in the Sambia tribe of Papua New Guinea's Eastern Highlands, Herdt (human sexuality studies, San Francisco State U.) discusses changes in this Micronesian culture since his original fieldwork in the 1970s. Drawing on subsequent field trips during which he made a film, he studies homoerotism in secret initiation rites of young boys, and parallels between the Sambia and gay-identified US males.
