Polly's best friend told her how out of touch she seemed. True she had to drink to get through the day, and her career as an advertising artist was going downhill, but she thought she had control of herself. She wasn't in control when she nearly killed her children in the car or when she stole from a liquor store. It was only when she was left one night in a state drunk tank that Polly knew she'd hit rock bottom and began to wonder how to make the journey back

This dissertation is an ethnographic study of sexual culture and youth empowerment programming, looking particularly at sexual negotiation. This research, which was based on one year of fieldwork in San Francisco and a series of life history interviews with 20 young men who have sex with men (YMSM), provides fresh evidence of the need to take account of sexual cultures when designing and implementing HIV-related programming. The study examines three distinct sub-communities of YMSM: a higher SES predominantly White and Asian American community of YMSM, a lower SES predominantly Latino and African American community of YMSM, and a White and African American group of homeless and marginally housed YMSM. Several key findings related to the cleavages that sub-communities create within the larger community of gay and bisexual men, a population that must be re-examined in terms of its diversity. Race, SES, educational attainment, and space all played an enormous role in determining the sexual subjectivities that young men adopted. Surprisingly, higher SES YMSM engaged in higher rates of reported sexual and drug-related risk taking than lower SES YMSM, mainly due to the role that gay families played in alleviating structural factors that are related to HIV vulnerability. Homeless and marginally housed YMSM were frequently involved in high risk activities due to structural violence, which rendered them more vulnerable to HIV. Interestingly, romantic relationships were an important aspect of gay life for YMSM, who frequently engaged in elaborate strategies to preserve their relationships, including engaging in unprotected anal intercourse with this purpose in mind. Several recommendations for programming and service providers result from this study, including the need for youth advocates, researchers, policy makers, and community-based service providers who are concerned about the needs of GLBTQ youth to work together to form coalitions. In an era of abstinence-only-until-marriage sexual education, advocates of comprehensive approaches to sexual health and sexuality must collectively employ a discourse that reframes sexual health as a human right
