  9. 24. Since the beginning of the epidemic it has been difficult to produce resources that gay men want to take into their private spaces. With this campaign posters are being removed and there is anecdotal evidence that men are putting them in their homes. We have produced a resource that gay men want. Replenishment of safe sex packs at fetish dance parties is required, as patrons welcome this delivery method of safe sex packs. In conclusion, I’d like to thank to Adam M one of my Outreach volunteers for the dance party photos, and to the rest of the Health Promotion Team for assistance with this presentation.
