KIU! is a great way to prepare for that long-awaited embrace with your partner(s) once social distancing comes to an end. KIU! is an online, interactive intervention for young gay and bi men that can help you stay engaged in sexual health during this time of self-love. It uses a variety of content such as videos, interactive animation, and games to:

  • clarify and answer your questions about HIV
  • help you practice safer sex
  • help you clarify what’s important to you in a relationship
  • help you communicate your values to your partner(s)

Keep It Up! (KIU!) is a project that provides young MSM (men who have sex with men), gay, bi, and Queer men an opportunity to learn more about HIV and other STIs. By participating in a fun, interactive HIV intervention that is 100% online, you can complete it anywhere you feel comfortable on your device (smartphone, tablet, computer).

The purpose of this study is to understand how Keep It Up! can be implemented at community-based organizations such as ours, Asian Health Service/HCH510. Your participation in this study will help us determine the usefulness of KIU!. If you choose to participate, you will fill out some questionnaires, and learn about HIV and how to prevent infection. So, if you are eligible, the research staff will send you an email or text message with more information. Even if you don’t want to do it, we ask that you fill in the other questions about you so we can get a sense of who was invited to participate. All of your information will be kept strictly confidential. At the beginning, during, and end of the project, participants will receive gift cards totaling up to $100.
