Published in Yorkshire MESMAG Winter 2010

A new website is to be launched in the New Year, it is being developed by 2 members of the local Gay community, as a not for profit project which aims to bring information together all in one place. The idea for the website came about after they had set up a Facebook page which became very popular.

Yorkshire MESMAC have been in discussion with the developers and are working on putting information together for the site, this could be a great opportunity for us to develop stronger links within Wakefield. There are lots of good opportunities with the site and YM will have direct access to update information and to advertise our services.

The aim is to have information sections for members of the public and also for professionals to access, these sections are:

  • Sexual health – Dr Lee from the GUM clinic has agreed to do a sexual health problem page, we can also run a monthly highlights on different STI’s and information on testing.
  • Mental and General Health – information on different topics and ideas of how to keep healthy.
  • Exercise and nutrition – as a qualified fitness instructor the Community Development Worker will answer questions and give tips and ideas on ways to help and motivate on fitness and weight management.
  • Drugs and alcohol – working with Turning Point for up to date information and support.
  • Youth Support – information to support young LGBT people with the possibility of peer mentoring

This could potentially be a popular local website with lots of people from the LGBT community accessing it and a great way of delivering HIV/sexual health messages.
