This free event is for those looking to talk about chemsex concerns and to draw on experiences of people who are involved in chemsex.
- What do you want other people to know about chemsex?
- How can we enjoy the sex we want without fear or judgement?
- Where can I go for the best information on drugs?
- Are there appropriate support services available for gay & bisexual men?
LGBT Foundation Drug & Alcohol Service in Partnership with Patrick Cash and Dragonflies Theatre are hosting a free event for gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men to enable open conversation on the subject of chemsex in Manchester.
We want to enable further learning between our communities who understand chemsex and the wider issues related to sex and drug use.
The event will be community led and will draw on the experiences of people who are involved in or have experience of chemsex.
This free event will feature a performance of The Chemsex Monologues which has received rave reviews and comes direct from sell-out performances in London.
Described as an ‘enthralling series of interlinking monologues exploring the joys and the jeopardies of the worlds of chemsex’. The Chemsex Monologues tell five different stories which have been praised as ‘Explicit, funny and touching’ and ‘an extraordinary tapestry of pleasure and pain, woven together with wit and weight’.
At the event gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men will be invited to help improve the information and support currently offered by service providers throughout the city.
If you, your friends or partners have an opinion about chemsex, if you have attended or hosted chemsex parties or if you want to discuss the impacts of chem sex in a safe and non-judgemental space with other men then this event is for you.
