This session presents recent research on gay and bisexual men’s health. Papers describe the transmission of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) through social and sexual networks, factors contributing to intentional unprotected anal intercourse, and culturally-appropriate intervention points to reduce risky sexual behavior. Overall, this session provides participants with a fuller understanding of the health concerns of gay and bisexual men.
Session Objectives: 1. List factors contributing to MRSA infection among men who have sex with men. 2. Identify correlates of intentional unprotected anal intercourse. 3. Discuss culturally-appropriate intervention strategies to reduce risky sexual behavior among Black, Hispanic, and white men who have sex with men.
