Stigma and responsibility (workshop)
13th annual CHAPS Conference (C13), Sheffield, 2nd - 3rd March 2010.
Speakers: Catherine Dodds & Adam Bourne
In 2009, Sigma published several qualitative, or mixed methods, research reports (namely: Relative safety II, Sexually charged, and Wasted opportunities) that explored a range of factors that influence how gay men and other MSM ascribe meaning to sex and intimacy, and how this impacts on their HIV risk-related behaviour. The themes of stigma and responsibility running through these projects formed the basis of CHAPS research seminars in five cities. This workshop was an opportunity for attendees to consolidate the outcomes of these seminars into achievable plans of action.
