Young men who have sex with men (MSM) account for the majority of HIV infections among young people in the United States and young women who have sex with women and men can also become infected with HIV. While family-based approaches have been established for other groups of youth, very few have been developed and tested with sexual minority youth. This chapter reviews evidence for the feasibility of developing family-based programs for these youth as well some of the factors that should be incorporated into such an approach.
