Gentle Man is a state-wide project for prevention and education efforts run by Aidshilfe Baden-Württemberg e.V. and the regional Aids help centres.
The project has been working for over 10 years to educate people of all ages, backgrounds and sexual identities, focusing on men* who have sex with men*.
Gentle Man campaigns for the sexual self-determination of queer people and provides information on HIV, STIs and sexual health in general.
Diverse events provide visitors with the opportunity for personal conversations and to pass on contraceptives. The project is generally characterised by low-threshold offers. Volunteer training courses consistently keep the staff up to date with the latest medical developments.
If you have questions about HIV or other STIs, need help or are simply looking for advice on sexuality or safer sex, please contact your local Aids centre.
Plus, Gentle Man is now available as a podcast! You can find our "Queergeredet" podcast wherever there are podcasts. The format includes talks with interview partners about queer issues, social issues, sexual health and other exciting things that we find important. Have a listen!
The spelling men* aims to make it clear that there are more than the two genders, female and male. Genders are also social constructs and are socially conditioned. The social gender is not natural. Our offers are open to all men*.
The project is supported by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Health and Integration from state funds approved by the state parliament of Baden-Württemberg and by the GKV-Gemeinschaftsförderung Baden-Württemberg. In addition, we also gratefully acknowledge the support of Gilead Sciences.
