This chapter discusses interrelated social and cultural factors that impact the lives of Latino gay men, thus making it impossible for many to reduce risk in their sexual practice. It provides a powerful critique of the limitations of dominant cognitive-behavioral theories of behavior change in response to HIV/AIDS. It studies the urgent need for culturally appropriate, community based, intervention strategies capable of enabling Latino gay men to change intentions into action by reinventing sexual scripts free from the damaging effects of intertwined oppressions.

Keywords:   Latino gay men, reducing risk, sexual practice, cognitive-behavioral theories, behavior change, HIV/AIDS, intervention strategies, sexual scripts
