Gay Health: Hornet series

In an exciting new collaboration, Avert, one of the world’s largest online HIV resources, and Hornet, one of the world’s premier gay social networking platforms, have joined forces to bring you a video series on gay men’s sexual health.

With all the changes in HIV prevention and treatment over the last few years, safe sex can mean something quite different from what it used to. This is why Avert and Hornet have teamed up to guide men through everything they need to know about sexual health and HIV.

Gay Health hub

The Hub

As part of this ongoing campaign, we’ve launched a new ‘Gay health, sex and HIV’ hub. We figure that when it comes to finding sexual health information online there’s a lot out there for gay and bisexual men, but it can be hard to know where to turn for information you can trust. Our new hub page brings together our resources on sex, relationships and HIV for gay men, all in one place.
