Between the Covers: A new magazine for men who have sex with men.

Issue ONE / July 2020 

Wknow there’s a lot to get your head around when it comes to sex, sexual health, HIV, wellbeing, alcohol and drug use. We also know it can be a grind sifting through websites getting the facts. That’s why we’ve created a bi-monthly digital magazine with articles, interviews and contributions on lots of different health and wellbeing topics – all by, and for, our community. 

Our first issue focuses on COVID-19 and lockdown. It includes articles on: staying safe during lockdown; keeping an eye on your alcohol consumption; HIV and STI (sexually transmitted infection) testing during COVID-19; withdrawing from chems; wellbeing and mindfulness; and all about our new HIV self-testing service. 

Waverley Care Chief Executive, Grant Sugden comments: “Our SX team continue to develop creative and innovative ways to engage with service users, and our wider community, during the COVID-19 lockdown. The ability to provide fresh approaches in delivering our key messages at this time is vital when there is new and changing information about health and social contact. However, our community can be confident that SX and Waverley Care continue to be available for support and advice around all aspects of sexual health and wellbeing".
