San Francisco: STD Testing Campaign for Gay Men Under Way
April 16, 2003
Following last year's successful campaign to promote STD testing among gay men, a team of San Francisco health advocates is once again calling for a "spring cleaning" during the month of April. The drive is the brainchild of Castroguys, a group of activists, health care providers, businesses, doctors and community members working to launch a neighborhood-based sexual health resource center for gay men in the Castro district. The center, to be called Magnet, is scheduled to open at the beginning of May. Until then, a mobile medical van will conduct STD tests in the Castro and South of Market districts. Local businesses will offer free or discounted services as an incentive for those participating in the drive. For more information, telephone 877-599-6469.
