  • Created: 12 November 2012

Over the last few years, OUT has provided free HIV testing and counselling services at various venues and events attended by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) individuals in Gauteng.

OUT made this service available to the LGBTI community to help you make informed decisions about responsible sexual play.

We are now in the process of assessing the service. If you live in Gauteng, we would appreciate you spending a few minutes taking a survey about our free mobile HIV testing services.

The survey is quick and anonymous.
