Nearly three decades since the onset of the AIDS epidemic in the
United States, Black men who have sex with men (MSM) have represented a
significantly disproportionate number of cases of HIV and AIDS. A key
element in addressing HIV-related health disparities for Black gay men
relates to the development of theoretical frameworks that are grounded
within culturally relevant conceptualizations. Within this context, the
objective of this seminar series is to better understand the role of
stigma, marginalization, and structural inequalities in Black gay men's
communities, which provide a theoretical framework to examine the
complexities of the AIDS epidemic, as situated in the everyday, lived
experiences of Black gay men.

(NBMAC), New York State Black Gay Network (NYSBGN), and the Black Gay
Research Group (BGRG)
