Why This Site?
This website is brought you by The Health Trust whose mission is to lead the Silicon Valley community to advance wellness. Support for this website was made possible with funding from the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The Health Trust has produced this site to help support healthy living for men who have sex with men in Silicon Valley. Our goal is to take a holistic approach to health that gives you the knowledge and competence that allows you to make decisions that help you live a healthy life.
Gay/bi/ trans men in Silicon Valley, San Jose, and all of Santa Clara County have the right to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. This includes the opportunity to have healthy sexual relationships AND remain free of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Together we can take responsibility for our own health and happiness, while advocating for our community as a whole.
If you need help, we’re here to help connect you to local resources. Together, we can have fun and take charge of our health!
This website is designed to enhance the health and wellness of men who have sex with men, however they label themselves. This holistic approach fosters vital aspects of men’s physical, mental and social health. Our intention is to provide information about resources and opportunities for enjoyment so that men who have sex with men can celebrate a satisfying sex life free of guilt and judgment. This set of core values guides our work:
We believe that you have the right to know the most current facts, research and data about your health and the services that affect you.
We believe that you have the right to make sexual and health decisions based on that knowledge.
We believe that you have the right to services that address you as whole person with dignity, respect and consideration for your culture and desires.
We believe that you are responsible for your sexual health as well as respecting the sexual health of your partner and the greater community.
