Rethinking the "MSM" Category: Webinar on June 13

Rethinking the "MSM" Category
A well-known HIV prevention slogan goes, "its not who you are, but what you do...."
What's the role of sexual identity in HIV prevention? Since the late 1980s, "MSM" or "men that have sex with men," has been a category used to describe gay men and other men that might engage in sex with other men, but not identify as gay. The term has since raised questions on race, culture, community, the impact of the category upon public health prevention efforts, to how the "MSM" category reinforces stigmatization and social exclusion of gay and bisexual men.
We'll discuss & explore these questions and more in our June 13th webinar featuring a fantastic panel of experts:
Moderator: Charles Stephens, HIV PJA Steering Committee Member
