When it comes to intimacy expressed through sex, as queer people we have always had to negotiate the contract between the needs of our intimate selves and the needs of the world we live in.
With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic’s unprecedented effect making so much of the ordinary and every day more dangerous, LGBTQ+ mental health and wellbeing platform Helsa and drug, alcohol and mental health charity We Are With You have come together to investigate the pandemic’s effect on sex and intimacy. We examine the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community, as well as highlight some of the wonderful and creative ways in which we’ve been able to find a new normal, in a world made newly vulnerable.
We're really proud of this piece from Helsa published on Attitude's site here.
