Hermanos de Luna y Sol

Hermanos de Luna y Sol (Brothers of the Moon and Sun), is an HIV risk-reduction intervention program for Spanish-speaking gay/bisexual men. Established in 1995, HLS offers peer social support and a safe, fun environment where participants can connect with others with similar experiences. The program is based on research by Dr. Rafael M. Diaz and emphasizes cultural pride, community building, and personal empowerment as key factors that enhance a persons ability to practice safer sex, avoid HIV infection and have healthy relationships. Program participants have reported safer sex practices, higher self-esteem and increased pride of being Latino/Hispanic and gay/bisexual as a result of participating in HLS. All services are provided in Spanish.

All participants must attend a five-hour intensive introductory workshop once per month. After completing this workshop, followup groups are available on topics such as mental health, self image, self development, and healthy living. Individual counseling is also available.
