According to a study by Singer and Marxuach-Rodriguez (1996), Latino men who have sex with men (MSM) were at higher risk of HIV infection than their white counterparts. This chapter examines the HIV risk behaviors of “at-risk” Latino MSM compared to African American and white MSM in a statewide sample in Connecticut. It discusses the results of a comprehensive statewide study involving 331 participants, which showed that AIDS stigma and “structural violence” play central roles in the lives of Latino gay men in Connecticut. It also considers the relative exposure of Latino MSM to HIV prevention information and outlines a new anti-homophobia social marketing campaign targeted specifically to Latinos. This campaign was created and designed by the Hispanic Health Council based on extensive feedback from the community.
