Finding a relationship can be frustrating. How has the Black gay dating scene been treating you lately?
The Healthy Is Sexy (HIS) Campaign is a community health initiative focused on increasing Black gay/bisexual men’s access and utilization of health care services. Our interactive health assessment, accessible online or through our mobile application, produces a personalized set of recommendations and health services. Our physical health cooperative supplements this by encouraging a fitness-oriented lifestyle. Each of these services is free of charge.
HIS campaign partners include South Side Help Center, Access Community Health Network and Test Positive Aware Network.
Our computer-based health assessment assists with setting healthy lifestyle goals (e.g., regular HIV/STI screening, decreased smoking, etc.), and connects to local medical/mental health services for HIV-positive and HIV-negative men.
The South Side Health Center and CBGMC will coordinate South Side physical and mental well-being programming, such as group physical training (including resistance training, cardio, boot camp obstacle courses and boxing/kickboxing), yoga, stress relief breathing and stretching techniques, as well as regular weekend 3MV retreats.
The HIS Resource Kit includes a searchable online database of sexual health resources friendly to Black gay and bisexual men, as well as an interactive mobile application.
