Getting real about ice - real stories about drugs and gay sex

Be-Longing For It is a new digital storytelling project exploring the use of meth amongst gay, bi and queer men. The men’s personal stories are accompanied by Sam Wallman’s comic illustrations and the result is a series of powerful narratives which aim to stimulate and challenge viewers to reflect on the meaning of connection and intimacy and their relationship to sex and drug use in the hopes of encouraging conversations on healthy relationships and harm minimisation.
