Chemsex review: gay sex and drug use demand more careful forms of attention

By treating the drugs it deals with as inherently bad Chemsex ultimately fails to find an appropriate “register of attention” to deal with its subject matter. Despite the (presumably) good intentions of the directors, what Chemsex demonstrates most powerfully is that the complexities of gay sex and drug use demand much more careful, incisive and intimate forms of attention.

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.

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."
