Positive Sexuality Series | All Bi Ourselves in HIV Prevention: An Intersectional and Community Engaged Perspective

December 8 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CST

Positive Sexuality Series
The third session in MATEC-Wisconsin’s 2022-2023 Positive Sexuality Series on LGBTQ+ inclusive healthcare, All Bi Ourselves in HIV Prevention: An Intersectional and Community Engaged Perspective is a training which aids clinical and non-clinical staff in understanding the unique experiences of bisexual+ individuals.

Program Description
Due to biphobia and racism, research about the health of BIPOC bisexual populations is lacking, and bisexual issues are underrepresented within LGBTQIA+ and HIV community grassroots and advocacy efforts. In this webinar, we will speak about intersectional research, grassroots organizing, and policy advocacy efforts designed to improve HIV care and prevention outcomes for bisexual populations. A focus will be placed on improving clinical care and prevention practice to reduce bisexual erasure and the resulting health disparities.

Intended Audience
Physicians, PAs, nurses/NPs, social workers, behavioral health staff, pharmacists, front desk staff, and administration. Others involved in HIV/STI care and prevention are welcome to participate.

Learning Objectives
As a result of attending this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain at least 3 statistics describing intersectional bi+ population demographics
  2. Summarize how intersectional biphobia and bisexual erasure contribute to HIV risk among BIPOC bisexual men
  3. Utilize advocacy skills for the creation of bi+ specific HIV care practices and prevention materials for PrEP and U=U tailored to BIPOC communities

Registration
All participants are asked to register individually, even if they plan to view the webinar from a shared screen or in a group setting.
