The Out to Lunch Gender, Sexuality, and Community is a weekly academic lecture and discussion series with guest scholars and community activists from various disciplines examining a variety of topics related to gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. Each semester offers a broad sampling of the areas.
Today's lecture is entitled, "How stigma impacts healthcare use among Black gay/bisexual men: Implications for PrEP and HIV prevention" and it will be presented by Lisa Eaton.
Synopsis: Stigma is a multifaceted, complex phenomenon that has stymied HIV prevention and treatment work since the beginning of the epidemic. In this talk, I will review the various types and sources of stigma, and how these stigmas impact healthcare engagement. I will provide information on the development and testing of programs aimed at reducing stigma and improving health outcomes for Black gay/bisexual men, in particular.
