FERNDALE – La Comunidad, a local group created to provide support and advocacy for Michigan’s gay Latino community, will launch a series of in-depth workshops in the Metro Detroit area to address how family, culture and community affect health decisions made by gay and bisexual men of Latino descent.
Called Hermanos de Luna Y Sol (Brothers of the Moon and Sun), the new program was created specifically for Latino gay and bisexual men by the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies in San Francisco, and adapted for men in southeast Michigan by the Midwest AIDS Prevention Project. Over the course of six weeks, participants will address cultural issues that impact HIV prevention, discuss the impact of HIV/AIDS in their lives, and explore strategies that will reassert intentions to practice safer sex.
The workshops will be held on Thursday evenings beginning April 7. The program is free and includes dinner. In addition, participants who complete all six sessions will receive over $100 in gifts and cash. The project is being funded with a grant from the Michigan AIDS Fund.
For more information about La Comunidad, or to register for the Hermanos de Luna Y Sol project, call Michael Odom at 248-545-1435.
