Abstract: This article analyzes the experiences of young men living in the city outskirts regarding social inequalities and their impacts on the health-disease-care production process. The empirical material that supports the intersectional analysis was produced with a qualitative methodology of research-action based on workshops, a group technique with participatory investigations. A total of 21 men and five women aged between 15 and 17 years who studied at a neighborhood public school of the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, state of Sao Paulo, participated in the study. The results highlight that young men share intertwined race-color, class, gender, and generation disadvantages that act in a complex way in the production of social and health inequalities. Therefore, analyses that restrict inequalities to a single classificatory system-class, gender, or race/color-are inadequate to understand the various dimensions that comprise them.
