Servicing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community
OUT provides direct health services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, MSM, sex workers, and injecting drug users, including HIV testing, counselling, treatment and general lifestyle advice and support.
OUT has been in existence for more than 21 years and is dedicated to the building of healthy and empowered LGBT communities in South Africa and internationally, while reducing hetrosexism and homophobia in society.
OUT LGBT Well-being applauds the recent decision by the Medicines Control Council to approve the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in South Africa.
PrEP is a new prevention option for HIV negative people who have high risk sex or simply wish to further protect themselves from HIV infection. It is also recommended for HIV negative people who are in a relationship with an HIV positive partner.
The Love Not Hate campaign has issued an urgent call for information about the recent brutal murder of music student Bobby Motlatla in Potchefstroom.
Motlatla, 35, a member of the LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) community, was killed in his apartment on the 6th of November, 2015.
Gauteng’s MEC for Health, Ms Qedani Mahlangu, has opened a groundbreaking new clinic in Tshwane, catering to the needs of groups at high risk of HIV infection.
On Thursday 3 September, MEC Mahlangu cut the ribbon to officially inaugurate the TEN81 Centre, located at the offices of OUT LGBT Well-being in Hatfield.
