Here for Gay & Bisexual+ Men

We’re here to help gay, bisexual and same sex attracted men to take control of their health.
We provide information on relevant health issues, and we offer a range of specific and general services delivered by caring people who genuinely understand the health issues affecting gay, bi and same sex attracted men.

WORKSHOPS FOR MEN

We offer a range of free workshops for same sex attracted men (gay, bisexual, or curious). Participating in a workshop is a great way to make new friends in a safe social environment and to learn more about identity, coming out, sex and sexual health, HIV, relationships, the LGBTQ community and other relevant topics. Our workshops are facilitated by trained professional volunteers and run over 1 – 6 sessions, depending on the workshop. Workshops happen at the the Pride Center and at select locations throughout WNY.
The below workshops are for all gay men. We also run other workshops for young gay men aged 13 - 17.
