    Unmask: HIV/STI Testing

     Two Smiling Young Guys

    Many of us have questions about getting tested for HIV and other STIs... When should we get tested? How often should we get tested? What type of test is right for us?

    This part in our new series of Unmask workshops will focus on sexual health and testing for HIV and other STIs.

    Unmask is a chance to be ourselves and have an honest conversation about sex, relationships and our community. Join us and meet other guys, unpack what it means to be 'gay', and undo internalized homophobia.

    Beverages and snacks will be provided.
    Access to the 2nd floor is via stairs or elevator.
    Gender inclusive washrooms.
