Our PRIMED Guide

Primed Guide

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!

Canadian HIV/HCV/sexual health organizations may order hard copies of the Primed guide via the CATIE ordering centre
