Did you know although there's millions of same-sex couples living in the United States there is very little research about this demographic? The You and Me Study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health along with researchers from San Francisco and New York are working to change this.
The mission of the You & Me Study is to gain a better understanding of relationship dynamics and the contextual factors that shape them in order to develop interventions to improve the sexual health of men in same-sex relationships. Little health research has focused on same-sex couples, and even fewer studies have included Black and interracial same-sex couples. You & Me will examine how agreements and other relationship-based factors may influence HIV risk behaviors among same-sex couples.
