Annual Report 2002-2003
Events and Resources
‘A safe haven where gay men can be themselves and not have to worry about the, often intimidating, outside ‘heterosexual world’.’
‘An unfriendly lonely place where gay men with money are invited, put under pressure to have the perfect body, gorgeous clothes and a tan to die for.’
Events this year have included fundraisers, Halloween and Valentines parties all involving the bars, bar customers and GMH volunteers. We also held a strong presence during the Pride Scotia festival in July with our campaign Life Stuff 03’. As part of the Testing Barriers Project, Life Stuff 03’, introduced a weekend of events involving all bars on the gay scene. Preparatory work for the weekend included training bar staff on issues surrounding the theme of the weekend, HIV Testing, combating stigma and prejudice against HIV positive people.
The materials distributed in venues this year include posters on safer sex, HIV testing, the national syphilis campaign and our own community magazine Core which is distributed in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. We have continued to supply condoms and lube to all gay venues. This allows gay men to have constant access to condoms suitable for safer anal sex, day and night. We have distributed over 100,000 condoms and 110,000 sachets of lubricant in the last year.
I would like to thank all of the venue managers/, staff and owners who have worked with Gay Men’s Health and have supported our work over the last year.
