UNSW requests our assistance!


Hi Guys

As a National group of gay and lesbian Australian surf lifesavers and their friends, the Kirby Institute of the University of New South Wales has requested assistance with their:
1           TAXI KAB Study; and
2           Opposites Attract Study.


TAXI KAB Study
The TAXI-KAB Study is designed to measure the Knowledge, Attitudes, and Beliefs (KAB) of gay and bisexual men in Australia when they Think About eXposure to Infection by HIV. Gay men are going to experience many changes in the way healthcare is presented to them in the next few months. We are seeking information from these men in order to inform the progress of the “Treatments as Prevention” revolution that is occurring in Australian health care, right now. The TAXI KAB Study is vitally important to the development of these changes and to gay and bisexual men in Australia.

To learn more or to take the survey:

Contact:
Jack Bradey
Projects and Research Officer
HIV Epidemiology and Prevention Program

Opposites Attract Study
Recent research shows that when an HIV-positive person is on HIV treatment, the risk of passing on HIV to their HIV-negative partner is reduced by 96% among heterosexuals. But what about among gay men? We just don’t know. And men who are in serodiscordant relationships (that is, where one man is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative) really need to know the answer to this question.

The Opposites Attract Study will help us determine just how much HIV treatment can reduce the risk of HIV transmission from an HIV-positive man to his HIV-negative partner. It is the first, and so far only, study in the world specifically looking at this issue among gay men. We need to ask both partners in serodiscordant relationships about HIV treatments, viral load, and HIV transmission through a short online questionnaire completed after each visit for their regular sexual health and HIV testing.

To successfully answer this very important question for gay men, we need to enrol several hundred pairs of men who are currently in a serodiscordant sexual relationship, in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, regardless of whether the positive partner is on treatments or not.

To learn more or to enrol:

Lara Cassar
Research Assistant

s possible in it!! I'll use the same steps from this years parade but the song is "It's Raining Men" Ladies, that doesn't mean you can't be in it too!!

So please check out the website for all the info www.coastout.com.au

Also note that there is a surf comp too which you would love surely! The parties are great, the beaches stunning, there's a drag show with dolphins at the Pet Purpoise Pool which is so hilarious so you have to trust me, it's fab, you MUST come!!!

Hi Guys

Our first fundraising event is 30 September 2012 (Sunday of the long weekend) where we hold a BBQ at Bunnings Alexandria. This was our most successful event last year in terms of raising money.

We need volunteers who would be prepared to come down, even if just for a couple of hours in the morning/lunchtime/afternoon, to help out with cooking, selling, ambience etc. It really is a fun day with your fellow LWP-ers.

It would be really great if this year we could share the volunteer load around: so, gather your mates and help us out.

Our creative director and choreographer have been really busy and have come up with some great ideas to make 2012 even better than last year (if that's even possible). The rest of the committee have also been busy organising sponsors etc etc...
