This chapter presents research findings illustrating different ways in which characteristics and conditions of the larger environmental context, and the sexual encounter itself, influence the sexual risk behavior of Latino men who have sex with men (MSM). The findings stem from a 5-year, mixed-method study of immigrant MSM from three countries (Brazil, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic) performed by the Latino Health Research Center at George Washington University and funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD). We focused on these three groups because they were underrepresented in research on Latinos in the United States. Colombians and Dominicans constitute the largest of the “New Latino Groups,” and they have received much less research attention than the long-established U.S. populations of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans. We also included Brazilians, who, as Portuguese speakers, are often excluded from studies of Latinos.
