Overview

Since the earliest days of the HIV epidemic, behaviourally bisexual men have been characterized both as more vulnerable to infection and more likely to transmit the virus to their female partners. Yet relatively few prevention efforts have been targeted at such men and the diverse communities from which they come. Bisexualities and AIDS reviews, from a global perspective, what has been learned about the relationship between male bisexuality and AIDS. It examines the forms and contexts in which bisexuality exists, and the difference between bisexual behaviour and bisexual identity. The implications of diverse forms of bisexuality for HIV prevention are discussed in subsequent chapters. Prevention efforts in a range of contexts and countries are examined including: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, France, India, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Peru, The Dominican Republic, The Philippines, UK and USA.
