Us Mob and HIV

Taz's Yarn

As a Brotherboy I see there is a huge amount of stigma and misunderstanding of the needs of Brotherboys and a need for culturally safe and affirming testing sites and other service centres. It is important that assumptions are not made about our different sexualities and the services that we require, and that clinicians and health workers are appropriately trained to better meet the needs of our communities.

As Brotherboys it is important not only that we remain educated about safe practices in all aspects whether it is sex, taking substances or even tattooing or piercing, but also to reach out to services where we feel safe for HIV testing and our other needs so that we have better health outcomes for the community.
