Title: Victorian Networks Study Technical Report (VINES)   (PDF File 111.3 KB)

Author(s): J Grierson, A Smith, D Wain

Subject(s): LGBTI community

Description:

This report represents the first publication of findings from the Victorian Networks Study (Vines). Vines is the first comprehensive investigation into the social and sexual networks of gay men in Australia. It is unique in that these networks are the primary focus of the study and the principal unit of analysis. Networks are the dynamic social systems through which HIV is spread, and the structures which facilitate the communication of HIV prevention messages, provide the normative reference for individuals’ social practices, and enable and constrain safe sex cultures. Networks, therefore, are central to our understandings of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and our understandings of networks are critical to our success in HIV prevention.

Title: Crystal Clear: The social determinants of gay men’s use of crystal methamphetamine in Victoria   (PDF File 969.8 KB)

Author(s): William Leonard, Gary Dowsett, Sean Slavin, Anne Mitchell, Marian Pitts

Subject(s): LGBTI community

Description:

This report provides a comparative analysis of epidemiological, behavioural and social research on crystal methamphetamine use among gay men living in Melbourne and gay men living in other urban centres in Australia, the US, and the UK.

The analysis focuses on the harms associated with gay men’s use of the drug and in particular on research that indicates an association between crystal methamphetamine use and increased sexual risk-taking and rising rates of HIV and STIs.

The paper reviews current crystal methamphetamine treatment and prevention options for gay men and provides a framework for the development of a coordinated research, policy and program response that will reduce the harms to gay men associated with the use of crystal methamphetamine and other illicit drugs.

Title: Then and Now. Gay men and HIV   (PDF File 602.0 KB)

Author(s): Michael Hurley

Subject(s): LGBTI community

Description:

Post-AIDS refers to how gay men live separately from, and in relation to, HIV. There has been a decrease in interpersonal contact with the epidemic for HIV negative men and an increase in distance from the effects of the epidemic. This often involves HIV positive as well as HIV negative men. Doing gay separately from HIV, however, has become more than distancing from the social effects of the HIV epidemic. Most gay men still practice safe sex most of the time, but gay and safe sex cultures are dynamic and adaptive. Put simply, doing gay is about living a gay life. Safe sex fits there, but has an increasingly abstract relation to HIV as both epidemic and virus.
