Mindfulness for Gay/Bi/Trans/2S/Queer Guys

Mindfulness meditation is a stress reduction technique that has been studied to help with anxiety, depression and chronic pain. Minority stress is a unique experience that oppressed peoples, such as queer and transfolk, carry the burden of, and mindfulness can assist in the development of resilience. We will also explore the concept of self-compassion, which is a method of developing a kind awareness in the face of difficulties, increasing emotional resilience and allowing us to be present for life’s challenges. 

PrEP Clinic Launch

RHAC is launching a new clinic at 186 King Street to prescribe PrEP: the HIV prevention drug! PrEP is a medication that one can take daily to prevent HIV. PrEP is highly effective when used consistently and correctly. We are happy to announce a partnership with SpecialtyRx to be able to offer this to the community, with a nurse practitioner who will be accepting clients twice a month as of June. 

Board Endorses U=U

 

The Regional HIV/AIDS Connection Board of Directors is pleased to announce its endorsement of Prevention Access Campaign’s Undetectable Equals Untransmittable (U=U) Consensus Statement. The key message of U=U is that people living with HIV who are on Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) and maintain an undetectable viral load in their blood for at least six months have a negligible risk of sexual transmission of HIV. The full position statement is available here.
