We examined the potential for a family-based HIV prevention approach for gay and bisexually identified young men who have sex with men (MSM). The majority of our urban, ethnically diverse sample disclosed their sexual orientation to parents, who were generally supportive. Family connectedness significantly decreased the odds of an HIV positive status.
