U.S. researchers found that black men who engaged in sexual intercourse with other men were more likely to think that homosexuality is "always wrong." The study also found that those who viewed homosexuality as wrong were less likely to undergo HIV screening. "Negative attitudes toward homosexuality ... could make it difficult for men who have sex with men to acknowledge their risk for HIV and seek testing," the lead researcher said. "Increasing the visibility of sexual minorities might help diminish the stigma of homosexuality" and promote improved health-related choices.
