Does sex education exclude young gay people?

How can teachers deliver inclusive sex and relationships education addressing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pupils' needs? "One of the most frequent things schools say to me is that they don't have any gay pupils," says Gavin Boyd, education equality officer for the Rainbow Project, which works to promote the health and wellbeing of gay, bisexual and non-heterosexual men in Belfast and Derry. "There's a cavalier attitude, especially among young people, that you tend not to die from Aids any more, so it's seen as a manageable condition," he explains. If young people don't have the chance to openly discuss the implications of risky behaviours, he adds, they can't make informed decisions about their sexual choices.

FUCK other STIs

PrEP is only about HIV protection – it doesn’t claim to offer protection against any other STI. So it’s infuriating for me to constantly hear this ‘what about other STI’s?’ sensationalism and attempted counter claim to the benefits of PrEP. It’s like saying wearing a seat belt won’t stop you getting cancer!

MSMGF: Good Gays get a Blue Ribbon, Bad Gays Bear their Cross

On November 23, the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) announced that it had partnered with gay dating App Hornet to launch Blue Ribbon Boy, “the largest targeted, global HIV viral suppression campaign to date”. The MSMGF hopes to reach 7 million MSM around the world through the Hornet dating platform, asking them to answer a short series of yes/no questions about their sexual health. Then, “Based on their answers, those who qualify will receive a blue ribbon icon on their profile photo signifying their personal commitment to sexual health, irrespective of their HIV status. Men who do not meet the standard will be offered recommendations for ways to protect and improve their sexual health so they can become a Blue Ribbon Boy”. Let’s look at the more disturbing issues arising from an intervention that pits the “good gays” who get a reward against the “bad gays” who bear their cross.

World AIDS Day: A Slut’s Perspective

"The gay culture in which I am enmeshed is no longer living in the grip of fear. ... I see gay men become increasingly confident and enthusiastic about interacting with one another, both online and in social spaces. We talk about the sex we’re going to have, and we negotiate boundaries. We take responsibility for our own health, and we show concern for the health of others. ... In short, sexuality is moving beyond being merely accepted; it is becoming celebrated. The rise of slut pride has emerged from the ashes of the 1970s."
