This chapter explores health disparities among men who identify as gay, bisexual, queer, same gender loving, or some other sexual minority term, as well as men who engage in same-sex sexual behavior. It discusses why health disparities exist and offers a framework to address them. It suggests that current prevention and health promotion efforts could be greatly improved by expanding the current public health paradigm to include a focus on resilience.

Keywords:   health disparities, homosexuals, health promotion, bisexual, sexual minority
