Planned Parenthood of Memphis has teamed up with the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC) to offer a seven-session program aimed at preventing HIV and other STDs among African American men.
Called "Many Men, Many Voices," the workshop series is aimed at black men who have sex with men, but the participants don't necessarily have to identify as gay. The target audience includes heterosexual men "on the down low," who enjoy gay sex unbeknownst to their female partners.
The intervention sessions will address sexual relationship dynamics, factors that influence the behavior of black men who live "on the down low," and the social influences that racism and homophobia have on HIV risk.
In order to participate in the seven-week program, men must show up for the first session on Sunday, February 28th at MGLCC at 6:30 p.m.
