Youth and young adults of all racial and ethnic minority backgrounds are impacted by socioeconomic and health disparities that lead to challenges with access to necessary health services. Also, cultural and community fear, stigmas and discrimination around persons infected with HIV prohibit some from seeking information about the facts surrounding these diseases.
In order to get the free concert tickets, participants, ages 15 to 40, must have a valid photo ID (drivers license, state, military or school ID) and get tested for HIV and other STDs at various locations around Houston. They will also be provided education about these diseases with counselors.
