According to the National Harm Reduction Coalition, harm reduction is a set of practical strategies aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use.
Chemsex refers to sexual activity while under the influence of drugs.
For some people, sex and drugs go together like peanut butter and jelly. But chemsex can be risky. As we know, both sex and drugs can impair your judgment and have their own risks. Yet, we also know that some folks are going to use them together regardless. That’s why the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective is providing this interactive educational opportunity. We want to make sure information on harm reduction when combining sex and drugs is available to all.
We will review sexual health and safety, as well as the ways drug use can potentially complicate safer sex. Then, we will discuss strategies to keep yourself safe (or help others stay safe!) if you do find yourself engaging in chemsex.
This program is not only for people who have sex after using drugs – it’s for anyone who is interested in the information. Passing on this knowledge could save someone else’s life. It’s valuable to have lifesaving information on hand.
Come learn, ask questions, and talk about your experiences in a safe, confidential environment.
