Date: 26 May 2015
Time: 12:00 - 16:00
Venue: Unit 22, Deane House Studios, 27 Greenwood Place, London, NW5 1LB
Trainer: Samir Jeraj and Neil Solo
Evidence suggests that men who have sex with men (MSM), and who are from from black and minority ethnic communities suffer greater health inequalities. Evidence also suggests that their access to support from community and voluntary organisations is limited.
We are currently seeking participants to partake in a series of learning sets looking at ways that black and minority ethnic voluntary and community organisations can make improvements for men who have sex with men (MSM). The sessions will cover gay, bisexual, and transgender communities as well as men who have sex with men and do not define themselves as gay, bisexual, or transgender. We will also seek to engage these individuals in a supportive learning environment.
There will be five half-day sessions, with a month in between each session. Participants will need to commit to attending all sessions, and to undertake some work in between each session.
This session will explore:
- the existing evidence on black and minority ethnic men who have sex with men
- reflecting on the key themes found
