Episode 06: Crystal Meth in the Gay Community
This week’s episode is an important conversation with social worker and head of Housingworks' Re-Charge program, Kristopher Thorpe. In this episode, Crystal Meth is the subject of conversation. We're talking about the rising numbers of gay/queer people who are using the drug with negative outcomes and how we can slow this health epidemic.
For our #ActionSteps in this episode:
Support Harm Reduction efforts in your community.
Remove the stigma. Ask your friends and loved ones about their experience, knowledge, and history with Crystal Meth.
Support LGBTQIA organizations; these orgs are most likely to be dealing with this epidemic first and most often. Your support will go a long way to ensure they're ready and able to do good work when the time comes.
