Healthy Relationships, Friday, Feb. 21 @ 12 in RM 903, 41 Park Row, 9th Floor
Recent political changes have dramatically increased the visibility and (at least in some states) legal status of same-gender couples. At the same time, HIV prevention research is paying more attention to men in relationships with men as recent work has indicated that many, if not most, new HIV infections are transmitted between main partners. This discussion will explore participants’ thoughts and feelings about the importance of intimate relationships, what a healthy relationship looks like, and strategies people use to find, stay in, or end a relationship.
Sex, Drugs and NYC, Fri., Feb. 28 @ 12 in RM 903, 41 Park Row, 9th Floor
Being a gay or bisexual man in NYC can be an amazing experience. The wide array of social activities and the diverse population that makes up the city has the potential to be a freeing backdrop. It can also be an incredibly challenging place to meet people, make friends, and manage the logistics of life. Many adolescents and emerging adults confront the need to form opinions and make decisions around alcohol and other substance use. Certain social venues, expectations, and stressors may provide unique pressures and incentives to use alcohol and drugs for gay and bisexual men specifically. This discussion will explore participant’s thoughts and feelings about substance use, the relationship of substance use to the gay and bisexual male community in NYC, and the ways in which drugs and sexuality may become linked.
