Social and epidemiological research suggests that the high rate of new HIV infections among young African American gay and bisexual men is related significantly to the homophobia they experience in their daily lives. Formative research was conducted in the form of surveys, focus groups and individual interviews to understand the extent and contextual types of stigma and marginalization endured within local African American LGBT young adult communities of Pittsburgh, in addition to community perceptions of how and why such stigma is perpetrated and responded to.
