Sexual Health & Well-Being

Programs & Social Groups

Designed for all segments of our community, these programs create space to discuss sexual health & prevention, living with HIV, sexuality and culture, and more with like-minded peers.

COVID-19 Update

We’re conducting most Sexual Health Programs virtually via Zoom, to make your virtual experience is as safe, smooth and meaningful as possible. Learn more.

City Mix

Meet new people and talk about all the things important to you in a fun and safe environment, including dating and relationships, stigma and discrimination, hotter safer sex, HIV/AIDS, and more. Some come to a meetup out of curiosity. For many, the group has become a meaningful band of friends. Give us a try and see how City Mix feels to you!
