Sexual Awareness Web Site Launched for Gay and Bisexual Men of Color
March 6, 2006
Gay Men's Health Crisis and AIDS Project Los Angeles recently launched a Web site to promote sexual awareness among gay and bisexual men of color ages 18-29. Mysexycity.com uses simulations, in which visitors make decisions on behalf of a cast of characters, to convey facts about HIV transmission, STDs, substance use, coming out and relationships. "Mysexycity acknowledges the pivotal role of the Internet in the lives of younger gay and bisexual men," said Craig E. Thompson, APLA's executive director. "We are always looking for new and exciting ways to make HIV prevention relevant for the members of our communities at highest risk for infection," said Dr. Marjorie J. Hill, interim executive director of the Institute for Gay Men's Health, a collaborative effort of GMHC and APLA.
