Gay & Bisexual Men

Being gay is not quantifiable. You can’t be 'too gay' or 'not gay enough'. You can only be yourself and if you think that you’re gay, you most likely ARE gay enough.

Growing up and living in a hetero-normative world, and surrounded by patriarchal values, can sometimes prevent us from being adequately equipped with gay-affirming information, knowledge and skills, about identity, relationships, sex and health.
