WHO WE ARE
We are a group of HIV and STD prevention organizations who have come together to support gay, bi and trans men’s health. Many of us are from the community ourselves. We also have our own sex lives, and know from our personal experience that it can be hard to tell partners that they may have been exposed to an STD. We also know it feels better knowing that we’re taking care of our partners’ health. We believe that the more ways we have of telling our partners, the better off we’ll all be.
CHOOSE THE WAY YOU WANT TO TELL THEM
Depending on how well you know the person – or persons – you have sex with, or agreements you have – it may not be a big deal to tell them they may have an STD. In other situations, it can be hard. You might feel awkward, scared, and worried about your partner’s reaction. Your local health department can also help, and will protect your anonymity too. Having a way to tell them anonymously gives you options.
HOW THIS WORKS
There are 4 sections and takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
Anonymously text or email a sexual partner that they might be at risk of an STD. If you text a partner, it will ALWAYS be anonymous. (Keep in mind that if your partner has only had sex with you, they’ll likely know it was from you.)
It’s best if you notify anyone you might have had since the last time you had an STD test that showed a negative test result, or one year, whichever came later*. If you email a partner, you have option to be anonymous or transparent.
No cost. Completely confidential. We don’t store ANY information. Watch the video below to see how easy it is.
* Some people find it easier just to notify everyone they’ve had sex in the last year. For more detailed information about whom you should notify, click here.
