In May three sexual health trivia nights were held in Newcastle, Taree and Tamworth for Gay Men and other men who have sex with men (MSM).

Men who attended enjoyed a fun social event, got information about sexual health, scored some fabulous prizes, and were consulted around their concerns about sexual health and wellbeing.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the trivia nights, the venues and the sponsors. Participants will be kept informed about the outcomes of the consultations, and notified of further opportunities and activities.
