• Gayhealth.sg launches new youth-led programme for gay and bi men

What does home mean to you? For many of us, growing up queer/questioning, meant the community, which has expanded from the staple of online chat rooms, bars, clubs, saunas, community based organizations to include mobile apps and other digital spaces. These are the safe spaces where we can be ourselves, accepted, and loved.

What we call home, has changed dramatically over the last few years.

While the internet has provided generations of gay men a platform to meet, it isn’t always a safe haven for young gay, bi or questioning men. It is clearer than ever that safe, physical spaces to exist is needed. A space where young gay and bi men can connect, access sexual health services, and build a support network.

First and foremost, Pink Carpet Y is a resource center, and we work closely with our community partners, and care-givers to form a supportive network where young GBQ men can access services safely.

PCY also offers the following peer-led services as well.

Pink Carpet Youth Drop in centre

The drop-in center provides a safe space for anyone who identify as being gay, bisexual males, are coming to terms with their sexuality. The centre will provide the opportunity for you to make new friends through games, theatre, movies and quizzes.

Sex & Fun Workshops

These ain’t your usual sit-down-and-listen-to-me workshops. They are designed to be interactive, fun, and sexy. Pick up practical skills and tips from peers, and learn how to take charge of your sexual health, so you have the sex you want.

Our workshops will explore topics such as long term relationship, starting out, coming out, exploring the different kinds of sex, or why you should test regularly.

Sexual Health Screening

Working closely with service providers, such as the DSC Clinic, & our own anonymous HIV Testing Service. we are able to provide you with very affordable sexual health screening, in a setting that is safe, and non-judgemental.
