Project VOICE

Project VOICE (Visualizing Our Identities, Connections, and Environments) is a mixed-methods project that explores how networks, venues, and neighborhoods function as risk environments for young men who have sex with men of different racial groups. It also explores how structural factors like stigma and discrimination may shape racial differences in risk environments. The project incorporates the voices and lived experiences of young men who have sex with men into understandings about multilevel drivers of HIV.
