TOTALLY OUTRIGHT

Totally OUTright is a FREE, sexual health leadership program for young (18-29 years old) gay, bi, two-spirit, trans* and queer* (GB2STQ*) guys from across PEI and Nova Scotia. It’s for young guys who are interested in meeting other guys, and learning more about their sexual health and overall well being.

Over four days, participants will engage in interactive, thought provoking presentations from community leaders and experts in GB2STQ* men’s health. Topics range from: coming out to sex, relationships to drug related harm reduction, community history to accessing healthcare, and a whole lot in between! Participants will also work together on a health-themed social-media group project.

The program happens in Nova Scotia and all expenses are covered including transportation, accommodation and food. The next offering is being planned for May 2018. Interested? Contact director@peersalliance.ca or give us a call at 902-566-2437.
