Servicing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community
OUT provides services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and MSM communities, including HIV testing, counselling, treatment, prevention and general sexual health and lifestyle support. We also work to eradicate LGBT hate crimes and assist victims through our Love Not Hate programme.
OUT has been in existence for more than 25 years and is dedicated to the building of healthy and empowered LGBT communities in South Africa and internationally, while reducing heterosexism and homophobia in society.
New HIV diagnoses in gay and bisexual men are at their lowest in 20 years in the UK, attributed in part to the growing use of PrEP, the daily HIV prevention pill.
A new report that looks at community-led healthcare delivery to LGBT people in South Africa has found that these individuals continue to experience discrimination when accessing public healthcare services.
The Quality Through Inclusion? report was produced as a collaboration between OUT LGBT Well-being, Triangle Project and the Gender, Health and Justice Research Unit at the University of Cape Town and was funded by COC Netherlands.
From the 1st of October 2020, the groundbreaking TEN81 clinic in Hatfield will be renamed Engage Men’s Health Pretoria. Managed by OUT LGBT Well-being, the free clinic was the first in the city to specifically serve the sexual health and well-being needs of gay, bisexual and other MSM (men who have sex with men).
