Program Description:

Many Men, Many Voices (3MV) is a 7-session, group-level intervention curriculum which will be adapted and tailored to work with Latino men who have sex with men (MSM) who do identify as gay men but not limited to as men who are on the ‘down low’ or engage in sexual relations with female partners (i.e., identify bisexual), are also welcomed. In an effort to prevent HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, the program attempts to engage men on various issues pertaining to who they are and their realities. The sessions will address factors influencing behavior of Latino MSM: cultural, social, personal and particular attention to religion and influence of mainstream media; the men will look at HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases; sexual relationship dynamics; and the social influences that racism/xenophobia and homophobia have on HIV risk behaviors. The program is meant to focus on social identity as a means to adapt and monitor behaviors in respect to same-sex desires. Besides it being an opportunity for self-work, the men are encouraged to have fun learning about themselves and enjoy the learning experience.
