Did you know that many new HIV infections occur because some gay and men who have sex with men (MSM) think they’re negative but aren’t? For some people, it can take years before HIV symptoms are noticeable, and not knowing your status puts your health at risk, as well as the health of people you love and have sex with.
Sure, the idea of testing can be off-putting due to stigma and discrimination. It’s critical we all start testing more regularly if we’re going to end HIV sooner rather than later.
If you test and find out you’re HIV positive you can get linked into the support you need. Talking to your doctor about starting treatment means you’re helping yourself, your partners. That’s no small thing.

Clinic 30 is a comprehensive sexual health service, operated by the Queensland AIDS Council, offering HIV and STI testing.
www.brisbanegenderclinic.org.au also operates from the same site.
Clinic 30 was established in 2014 at Queensland AIDS Council to meet the LGBTI community need for targeted sexual and mental health for our community.
Clinic 30 provides services to all of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer community; including GP Services and Sexual Health testing.
Clinic 30 employs professionally trained clinicians who understand the needs of our community. No need to “come out” to us. For more information, feel free to contact us directly on 3017 1777
Clinic 30 understands that the LGBTI population are exposed to barriers such as stigma, discrimination and isolation which can prevent regular sexual health testing. Sex industry workers are welcome for their certificates.
Clinic 30 means easy access to clinicians for your full sexual health screen. Simply phone up for the results a few days later. Any treatment required can be arranged. We value non-judgmental communication between client and doctor. In our experience, this results in the best outcome for the patient.
