As part of our outreach work we are out and about at events across London. A few weeks ago we were at Pride, and last week we were busy at events for fetish week. Next week we are going to be at Summer Rites. Summer Rites is the biggest LGBT festival in London and this year it’s called ‘Out on the dock’ because all the action is going to take place right next to the river at Tobacco Dock. There will be 15 bars and 10 arenas with themed sections such as HMS Sink the Pink, East Bloc and the Bear Brig. That’s not only all, there will also be food stalls and a Victorian steam fair. So what’s your excuse? Go grab yourself tickets before they run out!
We will be there though the afternoon and the evening so come on over and say hello. We will have our usual selection of goodies, including condoms and funky Oyster card holders, and we’ll be on hand to answer any sexual health questions you might have. Our friends at Bart’s Health will be there doing HIV testing too so even the more reason to come over if you’re lucky enough to be going along next Saturday.
As a reminder, we offer free, instant HIV testing at 3 sites across London (Ladbroke Grove, Vauxhall and Stepney Green) and do regular HIV testing on Saturdays at Ku-bar Chinatown (2-5pm). For more information about the GMI Partnership and where we work please see our website here.
