Join the Clare Project’s Focus Groups on Safe Sex and HIV Awareness for TNBI People

UOK’s partner The Clare Project, is organising a series of focus groups and interviews to facilitate important conversations around safe sex practices. It is a part of Towards Zero Project and furthers their ongoing efforts to promote sexual health and HIV awareness within the Trans, Non-binary and Intersex (TNBI) community.

One-on-One Interviews

For those who prefer a more private setting, the Clare Project also offers the opportunity to participate via a 1:1 interview. This option is particularly beneficial for individuals with intersecting identities who may feel their voice could be overlooked in a group setting.

Who We Want to Hear From

The Clare Project is especially interested in hearing from individuals who:

  • Are from minoritised ethnic or racial backgrounds.
  • Are sex workers.
  • Use substances such as opioids or cocaine.
  • Experience or have experienced homelessness.

What to Expect

Each focus group will be facilitated by a TNBI worker from the Clare Project and a TNBI community member living with HIV. Groups will consist of six to eight participants, while six individuals will be selected for interviews.

Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their experiences regarding sex, sexual health, and body parts. Discussions will be open and honest, so participants should be prepared to listen respectfully and engage meaningfully.

At the beginning of each session, participants will introduce themselves to the group and actively participate in the discussion. This is a valuable opportunity to share personal experiences and learn from others in the community.

Participants are eligible for “thank you” payments.

Why Participate?

Your participation will significantly contribute to the Towards Zero Project’s mission of enhancing sexual health education and HIV awareness within the TNBI community. By sharing your insights and experiences, you help create a more inclusive and informed dialogue on these crucial topics.
