This chapter aims to re-think the types of intervention strategies that have controlled education and prevention approaches to HIV/AIDS vulnerability. It analyzes in detail the roles of gender and sexuality in the experience of young night school students from impoverished inner-city neighborhoods in Sāo Paulo. It shows the many ways structural forces impact upon, and limit the choices available to boys and girls. This chapter also presents a conceptual framework for the deconstruction and reconstruction of gender relations and sexual experience through a dialogical and dialectical methodology that is originally pioneered in struggles against illiteracy and class oppression.

Keywords:   intervention strategies, prevention approaches, HIV/AIDS vulnerability, gender and sexuality, gender relations, sexual experience, illiteracy, class oppression
