Prevention Programs - Los Angeles LGBT Center

One out of eight people who are HIV-positive and living in the U.S. don’t know it. We’re working to lower that percentage by offering free HIV and STD testing in locations throughout Los Angeles. Those who test positive for any infections can quickly get access to the Center’s world-class specialty care and support services.

If you’re a young gay/bisexual man of color, join one of our groups to form friendships and promote support for safer sex

Color in Common

This is the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s program for young gay/bisexual men of color, ages 18 to 24, dedicated to forming lasting and rewarding friendships that support healthy lives and an environment for safer sex.

Through activities and events organized by a youth leadership council, which meets weekly, we empower young men to be role models, raise their social consciousness, and challenge each other to think outside the traditional sexual box. Together we’re building a community of men who are erasing sexual stereotypes while having fun.

The program is based on The Mpowerment Project program mpowerment.org model.

Rated M

If you’re a young gay/bisexual man of color (ages 18 to 24) who’s looking to form new friendships and who may be struggling with the challenges of staying HIV negative, come join one of our monthly peer-led meetings of 8 to 10 other young guys at (primarily) the Center’s Village at Ed Gould Plaza.

In our meetings, which usually last about three hours, we talk openly about HIV prevention issues and challenges and we get to know one another in a relaxed, supportive, and fun setting. Our meetings also help participants focus on their own sexual behavior and risks and learn how to support their friends and each other when it comes to safer sex and testing.
