THT to tell gay students ‘What They Didn’t Teach You At School’


This October, HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) will run sexual health workshops for gay or bisexual men who are university students in London. The workshops, called ‘What they didn’t teach you at school’, aim to fill any gaps in knowledge that young gay men might have when it comes to sex and relationships.

Sex education in schools and colleges is not consistent, and few courses cover gay sex in any detail. THT’s two-hour group sessions, funded by the Pan London HIV Prevention Partnership, address the issues around sexual health in a fun and engaging way. Workshops will be held at The Edge, Soho Square on Tuesday 19 and Thursday 21 October.

Gordon Mundie, Terrence Higgins Trust Groupwork co-ordinator said “These workshops were developed by students for students. Many gay men still leave school without even basic information around how HIV is transmitted and how to guard against it. We hope ‘What they didn’t teach you at school’ will fill any gaps in young men’s knowledge, and give them the information they need to protect themselves.”
