Person's detail

Michal Pitoňák


Michal Pitoňák is a biology, geography and human geography and regional development graduate of Faculty of Science at Charles University. In his doctoral research, he for the first time in Czech geography opened the field of geographies of sexualities, in which he investigated the societal heteronormativity and its effect on the social organization and quality of life of Czech non-heterosexuals. Subsequently his research focused on understanding the spatiotemporal negotiation of non-heterosexual identities, homophobia in schools and queer theory. Since 2015 he works as researcher at Nation Institute of Mental Health where he develops Minority stress theory and studies the effects of minority stress on mental health in non-heterosexuals. He also focuses on social epidemiology and destigmatization of HIV/AIDS and contributes to development of the field of LGBTQ psychology, in the process he stresses the need for interdisciplinary dialogue, popularizes science and champions the transdisciplinary collaboration, for example by foundation of an organization Queer Geography.
