Gay Men’s Sexual Health


 

 

 

Men4Men aims to enhance the lives of gay, bisexual, queer and other men who have sex with men by reinforcing self-esteem and personal empowerment through sexual health education and resources. Beginning in 2010, we have provided a number of services in Hamilton, Halton, Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk. Through the delivery of tailored and targeted health promotion we hope to engage the community in person and online in spaces that hold meaning for us as a community. We continue to expand throughout our region. Volunteers are always welcome. Some of our services include:

Men4Men Clinic 

The Men4Men Clinic is a partnership with Hamilton Public Health Services that provides free sexual health services to Hamiltons diverse communities of gay, bisexual, queer and other men who have sex with men, whether they are cis or trans. We run a monthly full-service sexual health clinic at The AIDS Network on the first Tuesday of every month from 5:00pm-8:00pm, and provide rapid anonymous HIV testing in various outreach venues such as bathhouses, bars, campgrounds and special events.

Distributing Safe Sex Kits

We distribute free condoms, lube and information at distribution sites throughout the region we serve as well as our main office in Hamilton. Some of the places we distribute safe sex supplies:

  • Bathhouses
  • Universities, colleges
  • Community based agencies
  • Community health centres
  • Public health clinics
  • Camp grounds
  • Bars and clubs

We also need help stuffing these kits

Each month, a number of dedicated volunteers come together to "stuff" the condom packs. In addition to "stuffing", the "meat" of the evening is the social interaction and conversation with other volunteers in a safe, sex positive environment. Contact us for more information.
