WEST HOLLYWOOD — The City of West Hollywood will host a Chemsex town hall forum in partnership with the Institute for Public Strategies to provide information and raise awareness about chemical sex and promote harm reduction and sober sex among community members, with a special emphasis with men who have sex with men (MSM) and sex workers.
Chemsex is the consumption of substances such as meth, GHB, cocaine, or MDMA, among other substances, to facilitate or enhance sexual activity.
According to studies, men who have sex with men who consume drugs during sex may help them to manage negative feelings, such as lack of self-esteem and confidence, internalized homophobia, or stigma about HIV status.
The Chemsex town hall forum will include a panel of participants and will facilitate an honest discussion about sex and the use of substances.
The City, through its Social Services Division is committed to supporting community members through agencies that provide substance abuse, recovery, and health/mental health services. For additional information, please visit weho.org/wehocares.
For more information about the Chemsex town hall forum, please contact Corey Roskin at (323) 848-6403 or email@example.com.
Wednesday, February 12 at 7 p.m. at the City of West Hollywood’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room at West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.
