A panel discussion about ‘chemsex’ – drug use in sexualised settings - among gay men.  The discussion will be led by Professor Rusi Jaspal, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, DMU and will bring together clinicians, support workers and chemsex participants. Each panel member will consider why some gay men are turning to chemsex, its impact on health, and how they can be supported more effectively.

The documentary film Chemsex will be screened at the start of the event with a discussion following the screening. The film tells the story of several men trying to make it out of the chemsex ‘scene’ alive and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them.
