HIV & STI FACTS
STIs and HIV are potential risks of unprotected sex, but by arming yourself with clear and correct info you can make informed decisions about your sex life. Here you will find a summary of the most common STIs and more details about HIV. It’s important to remember that HIV and STIs usually don’t show any symptoms until late in their progress, so the ONLY way to be sure of your status is to get tested at a clinic – see our link on Testing for more info.

In 1987, ACCM was run by a group of volunteers and although we have grown since, we still very much depend on the work of our wonderful volunteers. Without their time and effort, it would have been impossible for us to develop the wide range of programs and services that we continue to run today. We are always looking for people to join us, so take a look at the volunteer opportunities we currently have and find out how you can get involved!

Sex Now Survey is Canada’s largest survey of gay men’s health. It is administered by the Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC), a Vancouver-based gay men’s health organization. The survey covers a wide range of topics concerning the lives of gay and bi men – including sex, discrimination, health, and relationships – and this year it is focused on exploring the differences between generations of gay men. The data of past surveys have been used to inform community action, policies, and programming.
