Health & Wellness for Gay, Bi & Queer Self-identified Men.

Following on from our previous workshops on ‘Love, Sex & Intimacy’ for Queer guys, I’ll be co-facilitating a health session next week for guys from the LGBTQ communities. We’ll be sharing tips on exercise (suitable for all abilities); healthy eating; tackling stress; keeping a healthy sleep schedule and looking at how to maintain your sexual health. We’ll also be discussing health concerns that are particularly relevent for men aged 30 and up.

These targeted sessions aim to address specific issues for trans* people in terms of their experience of and barriers to services, whether it be GICs or general health services. Having discussed the sessions with the NHS England team, I feel really positive about the data from these sessions actually being recorded and put to good use. So, please get involved, have your say

Trans Health Matters 2014 #transhealthmatters

Following the success of Trans Health Matters in March 2013, the second event aims to provide a trans* voice into the health debate; providing practical solutions for trans* engagement and for strategic inclusion in the health & social care sectors.

The 2014 event is supported by cliniQ, the innovative trans* health and well being NHS service in central London; it’s partner providers and the National LGB & T Partnership. It will look at specific health needs and issues of trans* inclusion in the planning and delivery of health, public health and social care services.

In the spirit of the event, Trans Health Matters wants to include trans* people at every stage of its development. We’d love to hear what trans* people want from the day:

What matters to you with regards to trans* health and well-being?

What can the program include that would make it appealing to you? (i.e. what sort of activities or discussions are relevant for you)

How can we make the event as inclusive, rewarding and accessible as possible?

To have your say, join us on twitter, 4pm this Sunday (December 8th) on the hashtag #transhealthmatters
