Today, February 7th, is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Instead of listing off statistics, which are important in the right time and place, let’s use this day as a day for us to look back but also a day for us to look ahead.

Today, and everyday, we remember those who are Black/African-American and have passed away due to HIV/AIDS related illnesses.

Today we also pause to recognize those who are long term survivors and the person newly diagnosed. Today is also a day for us to renew our commitment to erasing the stigma and to ensuring that each person living with HIV/AIDS has access to quality services and treatment.

There isn’t a single rule for practicing social health and wellness. In general, they encompass a set of behaviors and lifestyle habits that promote strong relationships with peers, family, and even strangers. Being socially healthy means actively listening to others, treating your body with respect, and knowing how to communicate your thoughts, ideas, and feelings. Practicing social wellness can be as simple as making a list of habits you’d like to integrate into your life. This practice can have far-reaching benefits on your physical and mental health.

S*xuality is more than just s*x and what we do with our bodies.
.
S*xuality encompasses every aspect of a person's being, not just their capacity for s*xual interaction with others.

It covers five main dimensions including:

1. Sensuality
2. Intimacy
3. S*xual identity
4. S*xual health and reproduction
5. S*xualization
.
Which of these dimensions resonates with you the most?

12/10/2021

PEP, short for post-exposure prophylaxis, is "a combination of three HIV medications that an HIV-negative person takes for four weeks to reduce their risk of getting HIV after a potential exposure to HIV. PEP should be started as soon as possible, but definitely within 72 hours of being exposed to HIV. The prescription drugs used for PEP need to be taken every day for four full weeks (28 days)."

If you have any questions regarding PEP, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The GMHC invites you to join our discussion covering the topic of substance use and harm reduction. Throughout society, substance use and methods to address it remains a divisive issue. From alcohol, to methamphetamine, to opioids--here at GMHC, we believe in holistic health approaches, and that in order to support and champion the healing of users along their journey, engaging peers, family and policy makers in efforts to reduce stigma is an absolute must. Join us to talk about the impacts of substance use among our demographic, and to learn more about harm reduction as a tool to approach substance use

Whether or not you’re a s*x worker, subscriber or consumer, this should should anger you. Payment services and banks are dictating who gets to work and who doesn’t; who gets respected for their labor, time and talent, and who doesn’t. Banning SW from Onlyfans just promotes harm towards workers and supports shame and stigma as an acceptable world view. S*x work is work, period.

Today is - Some things to remember about nonbinary identities:

💛 Nonbinary People can look any way they want to.

🤍 You cannot tell someones gender or pronouns by looking at them.

💜 Singular they, as in they/them pronouns have been used since the 14th century and aren’t only useful, they are grammatically correct.

🖤 Respecting peoples pronouns isn’t hard, it is a basic act of human decency.

52 years ago today the Stonewall Riots took place an uprising which began as a retaliation against police brutality that sparked the beginning of the gay liberation movement. The movement forever changed modern q***r history. Today we remember our elders who came before us particularly our BIPOC trans ancestors who changed the world and paved the way for our modern LGBTQIA+ rights movement. 🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

You can get an STI if you've had s*x once. You can get an STI if you've had 100 partners. You also might not get an STI if you've had 100 partners. Is one person more dirty than the other if by chance they contract an STI? Absolutely not! ⁠ STIs are a natural risk involved when people get pretty close to each other, and some can be transmitted even if you practice the safest of s*x. ⁠ The reasons we feel STIs are dirty is due to social stigma not science. But, we can get rid of that stigma by being open about our s*xual health with our partners and other people in our lives, by getting tested regularly, and practicing safer s*x knowing our risks! Interested in getting tested? Let us know we would love to get you connected!

Yesterday was International S*x Workers' Day, This day is celebrated to honor s*x workers worldwide and raise awareness about the poor conditions in which s*x workers live and are exploited. This day is marked to show respect and treat s*x workers as a full member of our society. In this International S*x Workers' Day, let us pledge together to treat every s*x worker like an equal citizen, respect them and raise our voice against their exploitation.

As a critical component of these efforts, I am pleased to share with you the online Engagement Hub for Communities living with, affected by and who care about HIV. This online hub aims to provide communities with strategic information and resources on landmark political processes that could benefit from the active engagement of communities. It is structured under the pillars of sharing knowledge about these processes, providing opportunities to speak up and discuss, and take action.

This online hub has been developed with and for communities, with the technical and financial support from UNAIDS.

We hope that you will all enjoy this resource and interact with its different features. And if you have a moment, please so share your feedback on your experience using this hub, and how we can improve it as it evolves.
Get into it & get involved!!!
Join our Facebook LIVE on Feb-7th 2019 as The GMHC Crew and Fahasss join forces on National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day to help educate, navigate and discuss issues that impact Black Gay and Bis*xual men in our communities. We look forward to you joining us with your questions and comments.
