Compared with heterosexual men, gay and bisexual men in the United States have reported higher odds of having had skin cancer and of having tanned indoors.1 Research among young women has shown that indoor tanners have misconceptions about indoor tanning risks and report higher rates of substance use.2,3 Few studies to date have examined indoor tanning among gay and bisexual men.4,5 This study assessed knowledge, motivations, and practices regarding indoor tanning among men who have sex with men (MSM) in the San Francisco Bay Area (SF).
