Ep 166 – PEP Talk

Ep 166 – PEP Talk
Time for a pep talk, well, a PEP talk that is. We are joined by queer content creator Odus Moore to share a little about self advocating in healthcare settings as an LGBTIQ+ person. Recently, Odus needed to access PEP - medication to prevent HIV after a recent exposure - and was met with some perceived queer phobia and didn't walk away with the medication they needed. PEP can be taken to prevent HIV after a recent exposure - but needs to be taken within 72 hours. And, the earlier the better. Odus shares what happened when they visited a public hospital and had a negative experience, which they turned into a training and capacity building experience for clinicians at the hospital - but not before being bullied and gaslit online! Plus, we chat about mpox and preventing it by getting vaccinated!   Here's some stuff we mentioned this week...   PEP information GetPEP.info  https://what-works.org/pep/  https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/pep/  PEP Guidelines, for clinicians: https://ashm.org.au/resources/australian-pep-guidelines/  If you are diagnosed with HIV, you can connect with your local state based HIV organization    Training and capacity building https://rainbowhealthaustralia.org.au/training-programs Pride in Diversity: https://www.prideinclusionprograms.com.au/about-pid/  Training and Professional Development from Queerspace at Drummond Street https://www.queerspace.org.au/training-education/    MPOX What is MPox? https://emen8.com.au/health/sexual-health/get-your-monkeypox-shot-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-monkeypox-vaccine/ New Mpox cases: https://www.starobserver.com.au/news/new-mpox-cases-vic/230357  Where to go: Melbourne Sexual Health Centre Thorne Harbour Health Northside Clinic Collins Street Medical Centre Prahran Market Clinic No Medicare? https://oshcaustralia.com.au/  Some pharmacies that operate late or 24 hours.

Ep 156 – Gender, I Hardly Know Her

Ep 156 – Gender, I Hardly Know Her
Laird Leatherman Craig, our special guest, returns to join us in exploring what it means to exist as non-binary individuals in spaces traditionally defined by gender. We're also joined by Haydan from Eagle Leather and Melbourne Rubber for this insightful conversation. During our discussion, we delve into topics such as cis-presenting privilege within our transgender community, the vital aspect of radical visibility, and the implications of gendered titles like 'LeatherMAN' for individuals who don't align with traditional gender identities. Our conversation extends to the efforts made by some of our communities to create more inclusive spaces for non-binary individuals. We also reflect on the necessity of recognizing our own limitations, biases, and comfort levels when navigating gender-segregated environments, whether it's dance parties, sex parties, or venues. In addition, we have an exciting announcement from Melbourne Rubber, exclusively for our podcast listeners! Regarding Episode 155, we encountered technical issues while recording our discussion with Jasper about Vac Play and restrictive bondage play. Unfortunately, the audio became corrupted due to gremlins in our sound desk. Rest assured, we are actively working on re-recording that episode with Jasper and plan to release it soon!     This episode was recorded on the lands of the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples.

Ep 151 – You’re A Big Boy Now (Body Dysmorphia Series Part 1)

Ep 151 – You’re A Big Boy Now (Body Dysmorphia Series Part 1)
Body dysmorphia affects queer men in nuanced ways, and while we can't unpack every single element - we're going to give it our best shot! Some guys experience body dysmorphia through muscle dysmorphia - sometimes called 'bigorexia' where the adoration of bigger bodies can become more than a erotic fascination, but a driver in how we perceive ourselves - sometimes with negative consequences. Spencer Colt rejoins us to talk about his experience, and how our image can sometimes be tied to schoolyard bullies, and if we push ourselves beyond our limits we could just find ourselves halfway up Mt. Fuji with a double patella dislocation. Now, not all experiences of body dysmorphia are under this umbrella - so we want to hear from you. If you've experienced some form of body dysmorphia we'd love to hear form you. Be that slender guys, chunky boys, tall or short guys - anyone who feels their body doesn't match up with what their brain thinks it should be. Spencer last joined us during our OnlyFans content creator episode Spice Guys and the Sextra episode that followed We talk in non-explicit terms about domestic and intimate partner violence, so if you need some support head to joy.org.au/support Thorne Harbour's ReVisioning and No To Violence's resources on men's behaviour change programs might be useful, and check out Safe Always supporting LGBTIQA+ people experiencing violence Spencer is online over at Instagram at @spencercolt_ This episode was recorded on the lands of the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples.
