Spill the Tea - Reducing substance use stigma and increasing harm reduction strategies for GBT2Q guys in the Ottawa region
Due to stigma around drugs, sex and HIV, GBT2Q men who party and play (PnP) experience immense barriers to discussing drug use. In this session, panelists will discuss Spill the Tea, an intervention led by MAX Ottawa which focuses on reducing the stigma associated with sexualized substance use, and also provides harm reduction materials and HIV/STTBI testing referrals to GBT2Q men who engage in PnP. Panelists will speak to the successes and challenges of creating and delivering this community-based intervention.
Presented by Robert Alsberry, Devona Coe, Matthew Halse, and David
