Abstract

This article reports findings from an exploratory study of HIV knowledge and risk behaviors among 60 teenagers and young men engaged in thestreet life of Hollywood, California. The sample was composed largelyof youths of homosexual or bisexual orientation who were substance abusers, prostitutes, or both. The data suggest that although community-based education efforts may be associated with lower-risk behavior among this population, the overall risk profiles of these socially marginalized youths remained high. Inferences are drawn about the cofactors of risk that must be addressed and the education needed to enhance thehealth prospects of these youths.
