Nuestras Mil Caras: Latino Sexual Rebellions



Nuestras Mil Caras (Our Thousand Faces) is a reflection of the experiences of 34 Latino men living in the San Francisco Bay Area, combined with art work donated by artists from the Dominican Republic, and Perú. These men, through their stories, explore issues of disclosure of sexual identity -- first to themselves and then to others, specifically to family members. The process of disclosure helped these men and their families to understand the importance of HIV prevention and linkage to HIV care within the immigrant Latino communities.
