About Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC)

QuAC is funded to provide HIV, sexual health and Hepatitis C health promotion, community awareness and prevention services for gay and bisexual men as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The AIDS Council is also funded to identify barriers and enhance lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people’s access to broader health services. QuAC has workers based in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Cairns.

Programs

QuAC offers  a range of programs to improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI Queenslanders. In particular, their alcohol and other drug related programs and services include:

  • Drug and sex
    • How Hard: aims to provide relevant information for gay men and men who have sex with men about sexual health, sexual practices and drug use – and how sex when partying can be done safely.
    • Down and Dirty: provides information about sex and partying. The website gives gay men and men who have sex with men the opportunity to interact and ask questions in regards to sexual practices and drug use.
  • Alcohol & Other Drugs Program: aims to reduce the harms associated with drug and alcohol use within the LGBTI community through research, training, workshops and campaigns. We are currently working hard to try and secure funding to provide LGBTI specific drug and alcohol services for QLD LGBTI communities
  • Many more information and resources available on their website.
