Simon Nelson, Sector Development Officer for BME Communities at Terrence Higgins Trust and a member of the Black Gay Men's Advisory Group added: "There is a real need for generic black health agencies to reflect on what, if anything, they are doing to include black men who have sex with men in their work plans.

Simon Nelson, Sector Development Officer for BME communities at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: "Whilst homophobia is by no means exclusive to black communities, there is evidence to suggest that homophobic lyrics used by certain artists which incite violence towards gay people have a detrimental effect on the physical and mental wellbeing of black lesbian, gay and bisexual people, particularly gay men.
He continued: "Black gay men are far less likely to be out to friends and family, are more likely to face homophobia from within their own families and may find themselves with no option other than to lead a double life, often feeling that they should remain silent on such issues.
Simon Nelson continued: "We need to widen the debate on the whole issue of tolerance towards gay people within black communities - this must include the issue of homophobic lyrics and the "normalisation" of homophobia, both of which damage our efforts to promote good sexual health and well being.
