Sex and drugs and more sex: ‘Chemsex’ coming to Cairns this week

Sex and drugs and more sex: ‘Chemsex’ coming to Cairns this week

CREATED ON // Sunday, 17 July 2016 Author // Andrew Shaw

A doco on men’s relationship with drugs and sex is screening in Cairns on Friday.

Chemsex is a documentary that tells the story of several UK men and their relationship with drugs and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them.

While society looks the other way, this powerful and unflinching film uncovers a group of men battling with HIV, drug use and finding acceptance in a changing world.

HIV Foundation Queensland is proud to be partnering with the FNQ Film Festival to bring the screening of Chemsex to Cairns on Friday, July 22.

The film will be followed by an engaging panel discussion/forum led by Simon Doyle-Adams and Eugene Priscott from the Cairns Sexual Health Clinic.

Chemsex, Centre of Contemporary Arts Cairns, 96 Abbott Street, Friday, July 22, 2016. Details and tickets here.

    Why are people still showing this tedious, blaming and shaming movie that maligns the drug use experiences of the majority of gay men. Why not run a Just say No campaign?
