Abstract

Men who have sex with men (MSM) community are a highly complex, diverse and multi gendered population. Normally there are two clear distinctions to this population, one that is clearly visible and the other which is invisible as they exist as a part of the normative male population. MSM in India have faced hostility and social discrimination. The socio-political environment of the country is not favoured for MSM. MSM are the target due to their perceived abnormal identities and sexualities. Stigma and discrimination often results in lack of access to health care and other social resources, increasing the susceptibility of MSM to health risks such a HIV and STI’s. It is inferred from the research study, the poor knowledge and attitude towards HIV/AIDS has been found in Kothi’s group. In Puducherry region HIV prevalence among MSM is (2.0%). This MSM activity is grooming in Puducherry, so an attempt has been made to know the attitude and the awareness regarding the killer disease, and how to prevent it. In this study 200 Kothi were interviewed and collected the information. This qualitative investigation explored the attitude of Kothi (MSM) on HIV/AIDS in Puducherry region.
