Terrence Higgins Trust gets their lifeguard costumes ready to rescue people’s sexual heath at the Gay Star Beach Party

Gay Star Beach Party is a two-day travel show held on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 January. THT’s health promotion team will be joining the holiday theme as safer sex lifeguards, offering some helpful advice to all attendees.

Sunday 19 January will be their official fundraising day with bucket collections to donate anything you can and ‘help stop HIV in its tracks.’

As well as the THT stall, they’ll also be running a free, confidential HIV testing service, with the results then and there. Or if you’d rather test at home, THT will arrange that too.

Cary James, Head of Health Promotion at THT comments: ‘We’re delighted to be taking part in the Gay Star Beach Party. Our safer sex lifeguards will be at the show both days, offering information and advice on sexual health, answering questions, and handing out free condoms.

‘We want to remind anyone thinking about jetting off in the New Year that holiday protection doesn’t stop at sunscreen and travel insurance.’

Director and editor at GSN, Tris Reid Smith adds: ‘Knowing your sexual health status, and protecting yourself at home or on holiday, is vital.

‘An infection is one holiday souvenir nobody wants, so we are delighted to use our party and show support to THT’s vital work and help people improve their health.

‘We look forward to welcoming THT and all of you to two amazing, free days of fun and inspiration.’
