Transgender Sexual Health
As of 2014 ACNS has begun to look at the HIV/STI (sexually transmitted infection) prevention needs of transgender individuals as an expansion of the work it has long done with gay and bisexual men. So, at this time, this work is organized under our Gay Men’s Health project (see Gay Men’s Health). To date this has been limited to the inclusion of male-identified transgender men in prevention work targeting gay, bisexual and other “men who have sex with men” (MSM).

In the near future, we plan to expand our work to extend to transgender people more generally. All of this work is in a broader context of overall individual and community sexual health; whether you are HIV negative, HIV positive, or don’t know your status.

Prevention: Sexual Health
The Gay Men’s Health project provides HIV/STI prevention programming to G/B/MSM (cisgender and transgender) men directly, as well as organizations and health-related professionals that serve them. This may take the form of outreach, informational counselling and support, or formal workshops and presentations. We also take part in national sexual health campaigns as a local partner, and we always have free condoms and lube available at our offices (and key community events).

Creating Supportive Environments
The Gay Men’s Health project participates in programming addressing larger social and community mental health.This happens through all the HIV/STI prevention work that we do, but includes being a partner in community project like the Int’l Day Against Homophobia And Transphobia, local Pride festivals, and similar projects.
