About The LGBT Fact Site

The LGBT Fact Site is the home of health and life advice for LGBT people, published by HERO - The Health Equality and Rights Organisation. The LGBT Fact Site talks about sex, sexual health, mental health and relationships in a realistic and honest way, touching on many of the challenges of modern LGBT life, such as chems use, racism and HIV stigma. The LGBT Fact Site provides LGBT people with a platform to share their opinions and stories to empower the thousands of LGBT people who visit The LGBT Fact Site and read our FS magazine each month.

The LGBT Fact Site has been independently evaluated by the Cambridge Health Evaluation Consultancy. The main findings were:

  • The LGBT Fact Site was well received by all the groups. The panels agreed that The LGBT Fact Site took a holistic approach to health, well-being and sexual health in order to empower LGBT people to take control over their lives and have confidence in their minds and bodies. The value set guiding the resource seemed to fit and it provided information that was relevant and needed.
  • The balance between terms of interest was felt to be well managed and it seemed to reach out to a wide cross section of gay men both HIV+ and HIV negative.
  • Comment was made that The LGBT Fact Site was not just about sex and sexual health but covered a more diverse range of interests which was refreshing. This gave the site and magazine a broader sense of purpose, reason and direction.
  • The LGBT Fact Site was seen as having a wide reach and appeal due to its holistic approach to lifestyle issues including sexual health and HIV.
