A Campaign focuses on Safe Sex between Trans Men and Cis Men



A new campaign called GRUNT is here to keep sex between trans guys and cis guys.

From their website
Grunt is about hot, fun, informed sex between trans guys and cis guys. It’s a celebration of who we are and the guys we are into. A space to get accurate, inclusive and sex-positive sexual health information so we can keep it safe, keep it hot and have awesome sex.

Grunt focuses on the sex and play we have with cis guys because there is very limited information in Australia about how we look after our sexual health as gay, bi and queer trans men. In addition to this, men who have sex with men are disproportionately affected by HIV in Australia, in fact most of the new reported diagnoses each year are among gay-identified men living in our capital cities. When compared to other LBQ/not-straight populations, gay men experience a greater prevalence of STIs as well. Trans guys have always been part of gay male communities so we need to know this stuff.

If you are a trans guy into other trans guys, Grunt is still for you. The level of HIV and STI risk might be different but as a gay, bi or queer guy, Grunt is a good source for sexual health information.

The term ‘trans’ is used throughout Grunt to refer to people with a gender identity different to what was assigned at birth. For this campaign that means men, trans masc and non-binary people assigned female at birth (including those of us who don’t identify as trans at all).

In seeking the imagery for this resource, no volunteer was turned away and we tried hard to find a diverse mix of shapes, shades, sizes and expressions, we are grateful to the folks who donated their time, comfort-zones and bodies for Grunt.

I'm here for it and I think this is cool
