This year’s Leicester Gay Pride saw Trade Sexual Health join forces yet again with the Leicester GUM Clinic to present the Health & Wellbeing Marquee 2011!
They managed to launch their new and improved ‘Calling All Divas’ booklets, dedicating a whole stall to women’s sexual health. Their new gay and bisexual men’s HIV support group ‘Hi’ V had its first outing, and we they also presented their new Kwik Prick rapid HIV testing service. They had guests along from HMP Gartree, showing-off the ‘No Bars to Sexual Health’ joint project; Swanswell Alcohol, Drug and Support Services; Stop Smoking; Leicestershire HIV services; and also Nuffield Gym to keep you all in shape, feeling fit and looking good.
The Rainbow Asian Project’s (RAP) findings had their first public showing within Leicester, giving everyone an opportunity to see how we can improve sexual health services for gay Asian men, and as always they had a huge amount of goodies and freebies to give away!
They handed out 700 Trade goodie bags and had a whole stall dedicated to condoms – some even glow in the dark to help you find whatever you’re looking for! They gave out roughly 2,000 free condoms to those present on the day, not including the 1,100 we gave away in our Diva and condom packs.
