Description

Under a section titled, "Why a Sex Health Zine for Queers," the authors write, "The reason that I am making this zine is because safe sex education since the arrival of the HIV/AIDS Pandemic has been designed in a way to blame and shame not only queers, but also sex workers, drug users, people with multiple partners and non-white people among others. At the same time education campaigns tend to exclude these groups from large-scale public education campaigns making it even more difficult to get a hold of education and the tools needed to keep these communities safe and healthy. Being safe shouldn't mean giving up our identities. We can be safe and still fuck who we want to fuck, be healthy, party how we want to party, be responsible, have fun, keep our friends safe, keep our boundaries, not get married if we don't want to, have more than one lover if we want to, and keep our communities safe. If you want to and/or can stop having sex then, cooL.. If you don't want to and/or can't, then its good to know ways that we can be safe without being celibate."
