The Gens Hellquist Queer Sexual Health Clinic @ OUTSaskatoon
Want to find out what your HIV status is? Want to see if you have any other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)? Is it time for you to get a pap test done? Then the Gens Hellquist Queer Sexual Health Clinic is the place for you! Come to OUTSaskatoon every Thursday evening from 5:00pm to 8:00pm for a full range of tests for HIV, Hepatitis C, Syphilis, and other STIs in a queer and trans* friendly environment.
Our clinic started in April of 2012, in partnership with Sexual Health Centre Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Health Region. It was Saskatchewan's first clinic geared towards the sexual health of gay, bisexual, and men who have sex with men (MSM). However, since its inception, the clinic has had an open door policy to people of all sexualities and gender identities, so in 2013 we expanded our services to include lesbian and trans individuals, and began offering pap tests in addition to our extensive STBBI testing services.
The Sexual Health Clinic provides rapid HIV testing, which has results in two minutes. This means that you don't have to wait and worry for two weeks about your test results. It is also a safe and inclusive space for all queer and trans people, with qualified nurses on site to answer all of your sexual health related questions.
OUTSaskatoon believes that sexual health is as important as physical, mental, and spiritual health, so take a healthy step toward your own well-being by getting tested today!
