In this publication from Ireland, they investigated who knew the most about HIV and other STIs and who knew the least among men who have sex with men. Young people had less knowledge and those men who have not been able to come out of the closet with their sexual contacts.
If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot talk to anyone about your sexuality or sexual health, please get in touch with any questions, I would be happy to help.
