Become an HIV Testing Peer App Educator

image description

Testing for HIV is the only way to know your HIV status, and we are making HIV testing more accessible for men who have sex with men. There are now more methods and places people can test. Whether it’s at one of our testing centres, a local sexual health clinic, at a sex-on-site venue or with their GP! Additionally, home test kits are now available, so people are able to test for HIV in the comfort of their own home, removing yet another barrier.

To make sure that our community are aware of the benefits of testing often, and the ways that they can access testing, we need your help! We're looking to empower YOU with information and resources to take to dating apps like Grindr to spread our messages, so together we can remove barriers and increase testing.

To be a part of our growing app-education community, you just have to be on dating apps like Grindr where MSM interact and have a visible message in your bio encouraging people to ask you about testing. We will provide a day of training to understand the messages around testing, so that you're fully equipped to answer any questions the community may have - and we'll always be here to support you too.

Apply below, or email [email protected] if you have any questions!
