What is Totally OUTright?
Totally Outright is a free, four-day leadership program for young gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, and queer (GBT2Q) guys who are into guys between 18-30 years of age. You’ll learn about tools you can use to take care of your own sexual health, as well as strategies to help share the knowledge with your friends and community. Finally, you’ll get to work with other guys to plan an exciting new campaign or event using all the skills and information gained in the program.
What’s in it for me?
In addition to gaining the skills and knowledge throughout the program, Totally Outright is a great way to get connected to other guys like you in the city, including community leaders and experts. You’ll get to spend four days learning alongside your peers from local gay men’s health leaders. We’ll provide lunch, snacks, and bus tickets (if needed). We are also excited to offer a $200 honorarium for completing the program!
What will I learn?
By the end of Totally Outright, guys will:
- Identify tools and strategies to support their own health and wellness
- Develop skills to educate their peers and community about the latest information on topics such as HIV prevention, sexual health, anti-oppression, and mental wellness
- Build a network of like-minded peers in their community
Sounds awesome! How do I apply?
Our next session of Totally Outright will take place over two consecutive weekends: January 12, 13, 19, and 20, 2019.
