LIFE 757

LIFE is a program for young black males between the ages of 16-29 that have sex with other men. This program is not concerned with what you label yourself as (gay, bi, DL,). LIFE is focused on helping young men who have sex with other men have safe and healthy relationships, and experience personal growth.

LIFE’s purpose is to deliver prevention that accounts for a young man’s physical health, but also his mental, spiritual, social, environment and emotional health. LIFE seeks to build a community of young men that can lead the fight against HIV for the next generation coming of age. Mentoring young men who are having sexual relationships with other men is an important element of what we do and our purpose. Imagine the difference for a young teen to be able to talk to an older peer about his feelings, fears, and behaviors, instead of feeling isolated because of his sexual attraction to other men.

LIFE also seeks to include young men who are HIV+ in our community. We believe that young men living with HIV should be defined by their character and not a disease. You do not have to disclose your HIV status to others to participate in LIFE activities, but if you feel you need someone to be there for you or a support system, LIFE can offer you one. We also have a staff member dedicated to helping you with all the issues that young men with HIV face, such as disclosure, stigma, and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

For the past 5 years, Outwire757 has been the voice of the Hampton Roads LGBTQ community by reporting on the events, news, politics, arts, music, and culture that make our corner of the world an affirmative place to call home.

With our advertisers' support, we have been able to offer Outwire757.com and our sister publications, OutLife757 Magazine and OutGuide757, accessible and free of charge.

We are proud that you, our readers, have come to depend on us.
