Men’s Health Initiative – PRICK! testing event in Penticton September 28

from Men’s Health Initiative

The next PRICK! testing event will be on September 28th, from 6-8 PM.  PRICK! is a private and confidential on-the-spot STI testing event for all ‘guys who like guys.’

Our definition of ‘guy’ includes: bi, cis, curious, gay, male, non-binary, queer, questioning, straight, trans, two-spirit, and all other guys who like guys.

Tests included are for chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis (A,B &C), HIV and syphilis. Nurses can also provide education, resources and referals for other sexual health concerns (ie. herpes, HPV/genital warts, sores/rashes, etc,)

You can use your given name, fake name or initials – the main focus is to get guys tested.

This is a public clinic, there will be other people sharing the waiting room with you.

We also welcome you to bring a friend along for support.
