gay men’s wellbeing

Whether you need a one-off session or are looking for regular activities, we can tailor a support package that’s right for you.

As a gay or bisexual man, HIV can present its own challenges, so we are here to help you explore and understand more about living positively with HIV. Whether it’s improving your knowledge of HIV through our recently diagnosed workshops (link to recently diagnosed), sharing your status, dealing with sex and relationships, or improving confidence, we offer the support that is right for you!

Whether you need a one-off session or are looking for regular activities, we can tailor a support package that’s right for you. All our front-line staff as well as our peer mentors are living with HIV themselves and are trained to provide comprehensive emotional and practical support around all aspects of living with HIV.

One to One Mentoring

Free and confidential structured support provided by trained and qualified peer mentors

Next to our attending our group sessions and workshops, we can match you with a trained peer mentor who is able to provide free, independent, individual and fully confidential structured support. Positively UK will ensure you are matched with someone who has been through similar issues to yourself, giving you the support that you need.

Gay Talk

A safe and welcoming space for gay and bisexual men for discussions
We gather on the first Saturday of each month to connect with each other, build connections and reduce isolation. Each month focusses on a different theme, and we lay on a nice lunch! Past themes have included dating and relationships, drugs and alcohol, chemsex, the future of HIV treatment, PreP, U=U, travelling when living with HIV.

Chris has been a figure of compassion and support for me since my HIV diagnosis. He helped me to normalize it, forgive myself and even spent time with me personally as well as talking when I needed it. I genuinely wouldn’t have been able to come to terms with it as I have if it weren’t for his support. I very much admire his work for charity and raising awareness of HIV and I have no doubt this has had a profound impact on others he may not even know about through his example and openness. Since coming to the events and GayTalk I feel like I’ve turned a corner and seen my life from a new perspective. HIV awareness is so important and he has turned a traumatic event in my life into something so positive.
