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 and bi 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.
