Not even the unexpectedly heavy rain could dampen the spirits of those revellers who joined Steve Retson Project at Pride Glasgow 2016 in celebrating LGBTI equality in Scotland.
If there was ever a common thread that weaves through the fabric of the LGBTI community it is the ability to be resilient in the face of adversity. Whether it’s your own personal resilience, or as part of a wider community, the ability to adapt to stress and adversity in life can play a significant role in your physical and mental wellbeing.
Part of being resilient comes from both supporting others and feeling you are being supported by others.
Everyone who gathered over the two days on Glasgow Green to take part in Pride Glasgow couldn’t have failed to witness not only families and friends supporting LGBTI loved ones, but also many supporting statutory organisations and charities within the Community Expo.
An amazing amount of people dropped by our Steve Retson Project community stall to meet the team, find out more about the SRP Clinics, Choices and Health Improvement services and grabbed themselves some goodies to boot! Some even took the opportunity to have a free, confidential HIV test at our on site Testing Cabin.
However it isn’t just once a year you can expect our support. As healthcare professionals, we are committed to helping you maintain good sexual health and emotional well-being at all times and stages in your life. The Steve Retson Project is here for you whether it’s for a regular check-up, to get help after you’ve had an unplanned experience, or because you want to talk something through.
Planning ahead and taking control will give you the benefit of knowing that whatever else is going on in 2017, you’ll be taking care of your sexual health.Read More
