Description

Please join us for our new Premium Brown Bag Lunch & Learn Series for service providers! We invite you on the third Thursday of each month to bring a lunch and learn about health, health equity, social justice, inclusion and more from expert guest speakers.

Next up is Party n Play Your Way:

Enhancing the health of gay, bi, queer men who use drugs to enhance sex In Ontario; gay, bisexual, queer and other men who have sex with men remain disproportionately impacted by HIV and other sexually transmitted blood borne infections (STBBIs). Evidence clearly indicates the association between sexualized substance use, poly-substance use and co-occurring mental health challenges on HIV related concerns. Integrated responses to the risks related to sexual health and problem substance use have been established in some jurisdictions and are efficacious.

During this interactive workshop, participants will go ‘between the sheets’ to explore and unpack contemporary issues and trends in the use of drugs by gay, bisexual and queer men. Expect to increase your knowledge, develop new skills and feel more confident in your work with sexual minority men.

Learning Objectives

1. Define Party n Play and its evolution among gay men within a cultural and historical context
2. Understand key terms and how they are connected
3. Illustrate the relevance of Party n Play to professional roles in HIV/HCV/STBBI health promotion and harm reduction
4. Explore the subcultural context in which sexual minority men use drugs (i.e. Party n Play)
5. Review facets of the GMSH’s provincial campaign entitled, Party n Play Your Way, to better understand key health promotion messages for this population and to increase cultural competency in working with sexual minority men.
