About the workshop
This workshop will focus on defining how to achieve and navigate ‘healthy relationships’ in the ‘guys into guys’ communities (GBT2Q) during COVID-19 in our app-based world.
We will discuss how trauma and other life events can impact feelings of loneliness and isolation.
We will explore hook-up safety and assessment for any/all conditions we meet, covering who, what, when, where, and why?
