The inclusion of lesbian and bisexual women on health promotion agenda is scarce. However, the existing risks in their sexual practices have been scientifically recognized. This article presents the main results of the program "La Solucion es la Tijera" oriented to lesbian and bisexual women from Cali, Colombia. Twenty-three women between 18 and 25 years old (X= 21.7; DS=1.78) participated in this study. The program evaluation was conducted with a pre-post design, using mixed methodologies. Significant changes in the knowledge level and attitudes towards HIV were found. Likewise, a strengthening in their identity and an empowerment in their sexuality and knowledge about sexual and reproductive rights was reported by the participants.
