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.
This book was created as a joint project of San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality, San Francisco State University, and Universidad Autonoma de Zacatecas. More details about the project can be found in the introduction.
