AIDS Project Rhode Island Launches New Website for Gay Men

July 15, 2013

AIDS Project Rhode Island (APRI) launched a new Web site to address the health needs of gay and bisexual men. The site, called, will inform its users about how to stay healthy and HIV-free, and provide a forum for them to connect with each other socially. The site resulted from the responses of gay and bisexual men to a statewide survey and features an interactive HIV risk quiz; frequently asked questions on men's health; lists of HIV test sites; and links to LGBT-friendly healthcare providers such as doctors, dentists, and mental health specialists. The site also includes safe sex information and tips on post and pre-exposure prophylaxis. Dr. Phil Chan, an internal medicine and infectious disease physician at the Miriam Hospital in Providence, will answer site visitors' questions. The site features resources for those who have not yet dealt with their sexual orientation, a community calendar for groups to post events, and information on how to become an activist, as well as a section called Living with HIV in Rhode Island, where people can share their stories. APRI Executive Director Thomas Bertrand plans to promote the site on college LGBT sites and the state health department's Web site.
