It’s not just a slogan anymore. As more young men of color engage in risky sexual behaviors, it’s even more important to know your status—whether or not you are HIV infected. No matter how you get down; gay, str8, bi, DL, trans, top, bttm, or vers…be responsible…SEXsponsible…. because knowing your status leads to a healthier lifestyle.
