Get connected! Today Bisexual Health Awareness Month focuses on sexual health resources, information, and services for bisexual youth+.
Among female youth, bisexuality was found to be associated with unprotected intercourse during their last sexual encounter. Young men of color (ages 15-22) who have sex with men are at disproportionate risk of acquiring HIV, and gay, lesbian, and bisexual homeless youth have greater HIV risks and these risks are greater among bisexual female youth. Therefore, bisexual+ (e.g. bisexual, pansexual, queer, fluid, no label) youth are in critical need of programs, services, and resources that can improve their sexual health.
