This chapter aims to re-think the types of intervention strategies that have controlled education and prevention approaches to HIV/AIDS vulnerability. It analyzes in detail the roles of gender and sexuality in the experience of young night school students from impoverished inner-city neighborhoods in Sāo Paulo. It shows the many ways structural forces impact upon, and limit the choices available to boys and girls. This chapter also presents a conceptual framework for the deconstruction and reconstruction of gender relations and sexual experience through a dialogical and dialectical methodology that is originally pioneered in struggles against illiteracy and class oppression.

Keywords: intervention strategies; prevention approaches; HIV/AIDS vulnerability; gender and sexuality; gender relations; sexual experience; illiteracy; class oppression
