Gay dating someone with hiv

As is always the case with anger, I wasn’t sure where to direct it.

I had a room full of media in front of me that included the broadsheets and the gay press.

It does an injustice to separate it from our historical relationship to recreational drugs, gay community, gay scenes and gay sex. The fact that such large numbers of gay men are struggling to enjoy sober sex needs to be addressed.

Read: It’s time we had a grown-up talk about gay men, drugs and sex When we look back at the last 100 years (with a little more historical perspective than we have right now), chemsex will be one of those phenomena that will define a period of our gay history. What made me angry that evening was how liberally the straight media share articles about chemsex – almost weekly – compared to how reluctant the gay media can be to discuss it.

It defines a particular type of recreational drug use.

It’s absolutely about crystal meth, mephedrone and GHB/GBL, because these drugs affect our sex drives differently.

I knew some of the guys present to be very intimately familiar with chemsex.

Some were shy about it but had turned out to applaud a gay brother who was brave enough to tell his story publicly, to de-shame it for others, for themselves.

But we don’t have the luxury of dispassionate, historical perspective right now. That imbalance enflames trolling, and the stigma experienced by our gay brothers who are struggling with chemsex.
