Chemsex Has Always Been With Us

Not before time, the gay press in London, realising we have a dangerous drugs-and-sex scene here that is killing gay men, has finally started to cover it in an analytic, compassionate and sober way (pun intended). I’m pleased about this, and pleased by this powerfully written piece by David Stuart (see https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/chemsex-will-defines-period-gay-history/#gs.3r47mag). No one has done more to help and rescue gay Londoners who have got lost in the maze of chemsex, and help them achieve self-respect and structure in their lives. And yet I disagree that Chemsex is anything new. We gay men have been always been furtive about the sex we sex we want and do, and have always sought private, intoxicated spaces to do it in.

PrEP-ing for HIV prevention in Ireland

Lack of access to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is presenting dilemmas for the HSE, clinicians, the medicines regulator and those seeking the medication in Ireland. A recent memo to healthcare professionals sent on behalf of the HSE’s Working Group on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), discouraging them from directing patients to the activist-led website www.iwantPrEPnow.co.uk for information on sourcing pre-emptive antiretroviral therapy online, is a talking point among campaigners advocating for access.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
