This website and the Primed resource were developed by the GMSH Gay, Bi, Queer Trans Men’s Working Group.
We are a group of trans and non-trans community members and service providers across Ontario that address sexual health issues for GBQ trans men and our partners.
The working group is a part of the Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance (GMSH), a provincial initiative hosted within the offices of the Ontario AIDS Network (OAN). For more information visit www.gmsh.ca.
For more information or to get involved please e-mail us.
We have gathered together a list of resources available across Ontario and online.
Primed: A Sex Guide for Trans Men Into Men was the first sexual health resource written by and for gay, bi and queer trans men. It was first published in 2007, and updated in 2015. Based on an Ontario-wide assessment of the sexual health needs of gay, bi and queer trans men, Primed prioritizes our diverse bodies, desires, and sexualities. This resource will spark discussion about the many ways that trans men have sex and how we interact with our gay/queer men's communities.
Topics covered in the guide include: disclosure, finding sex and cruising, safer sex and harm reduction, HIV and other STIs, and more!
