Sexual health is a big issue within the LGBT+ community.  Here we run a yearly meeting on sexual health, but a wealth of information about safe sex and where to get sexual health testing can be found online with the links at the bottom of this page. 
If ever you are worried or in doubt, please contact who will be able to provide advice and support, or put you in touch with someone who can help.
