Outreach on cruising sites
Information and advice is provided by The Eddystone Trust through outreach to a busy cruising site in Devon. Workers engage with MSM who may not identify as gay or bisexual including conversations about HIV and STIs. Workers have discussions about relationships and managing expectations of pleasure and risk. Relationships developed with regular cruisers help to pass information into networks if there is an STI outbreak or new dangers in cruising areas. The site poses challenges, following complaints of littering and concerns from statutory bodies. Building and maintaining relationships with the police and statutory authorities, and community engagement has been key to these concerns.
