ACAS Men’s Program presents SLAM!: Sex Love Asian Men.

We want to invite you to the annual SLAM Forum! A one-day interactive learning forum on sex, health, lifestyle and everything in between, for self-identified cis & trans gay, bi, queer Asian men.
– on Saturday, March 17th 2018.
Introducing this year’s theme…..

EXPLORASIAN:
To boldly go where no one has gone before

This year we will get to explore worlds not often talked about in the community. We will learn first-hand from different queer Asians and their personal experiences involving kink, substance-use, sex work, PrEP, raising a baby, and much more!

It’s totally FREE and lunch is on us. Invite a friend or two!

As Asian men, we were raised with distinct cultural values and beliefs that inform and guide our lives when it comes to talking about sex and sexual health. In a world filled with complex issues and conflicting messages, many of us receive information based on rumour and inaccurate perspectives. As a result, we may act on or make decisions that may lead to negative consequences.

This interactive forum has been designed to address some of the issues facing Asian gay and bi men in a fun and safe environment. It will be a great opportunity to discuss and share our experiences, skills and knowledge with our peers of all orientations in the spirit of mutual friendship. By exploring holistic and empowering approaches to our health (physical, emotional, sexual), lifestyles and identities, we as Asian men will be able to reaffirm our place in society.
