PnP 101

Health Initiative for Men (HIM)’s PnP & Me harm reduction-based program is for gay, bi, queer men and gender diverse folks who use meth during sex and want support achieving health goals. As a harm reduction program, abstinence may be part of the conversation, but isn’t a requirement. HIM’s Daniel Boyle presents the basics of party and play grounded in the colonial history of drug prohibition and the social models of substance use and addiction. Daniel presents the nuances of sexualized substance use compared to other combinations of drugs and sex.

From the evaluation: “I really appreciated the framing of drug/alcohol prohibition and racism in Canada.”





Daniel Boyle is the Program Coordinator, Community Engagement at HIM.
