Many Men, Many Voices
Many Men, Many Voices (3MV) is a 7-session, group-level intervention program to prevent HIV and sexually transmitted diseases among black men who have sex with men (MSM) who may or may not identify themselves as gay. The intervention addresses factors that influence the behavior of black MSM: cultural, social, and religious norms; interactions between HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases; sexual relationship dynamics; and the social influences that racism and homophobia have on HIV risk behaviors.
Topics that are covered include:
• Session 1: The Dual Identity Culture of black MSM
• Session 2: HIV Prevention for black MSM: Sexual Roles and Risks
• Session 3: HIV Risk Assessment and Prevention Options
• Session 4: Intentions to Act and Capacity to Change
• Session 5: Partner Selection, Communication, and Negotiation
• Session 6: Social Support and Problem Solving to Maintain Change
• Session 7: Building Bridges and Community
