Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) in Nigeria bear a disproportionately higher burden of HIV. Meyer's minority stress theory posits that social stress due to the discrimination, violence, and stigma experienced by lesbian, gay, and bisexual men and women (LGBs)-due to their sexual orientation-may contribute to psychological problems, including mental health problems, substance use, and HIV sexual risk-taking. Between March and June 2019, we recruited 406 GBMSM from four s...

Abstract null null Introduction null People with HIV (PWH) who are not consistently retained in medical care, particularly when they are first diagnosed, are at risk for: delayed antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation, suboptimal ART adherence, unsuppressed viremia, and mortality. Suboptimal retention means effective ART cannot be leveraged to prevent onward HIV transmission. To address this, we developed and previously pilot tested the HIV Engage intervention—a novel behavioral approach to enh...

Recent policies have restricted the rights of the US transgender people; there is a need to explore transgender people’s knowledge and attitudes regarding such policies and related mental health. In 2019, 580 transgender adults living in the Northeastern US completed a survey assessing demographics, knowledge/attitudes toward transgender-related policies, and mental health. Multivariable logistic regression models, adjusted for age, gender, race, and prior abuse, were fit to examine the associat...

Methods Transgender adults (N = 600) from Massachusetts and Rhode Island completed a survey online or in-person. Multivariable linear and logistic regression models examined the association between lifetime experiences of transgender-related discrimination us...
