Event Full Details:
More gay and bisexual men are affected by cancer than HIV and yet very few have ever discussed cancer with a healthcare professional.
Community surveys suggest that gay men in general drink and smoke more than straight men, putting them at greater risk of developing health problems. This means that there is a need for men themselves to become more aware of their risks of health issues such as cancer, and be more open about discussing their sexual orientation with health professionals.
Because there is an absence of reliable data on the health needs of gay and bisexual men in this area, The Lesbian & Gay Foundation in partnership with the Health & Wellbeing Service from Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust (NHS) are hosting this special event to launch a brand new information resource.
