Outline in Catalyst’s Useful Information by Topic

Sexuality is intricately linked to one’s personal experience and feelings. The term encompasses many aspects and there is no one unified definition.

Gender identity is one’s innate self of being – be it male, female, in-between, fluctuating or neither.

We all have to interact with other people. How someone interacts with other people or institutions and how they in response react to the individual will impact upon that person’s social health.

Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realises their own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to their community. In this positive sense, mental health is the foundation for individual well-being and the effective functioning of a community.

Cruising is an activity where men meet to have sex with each other. A cruising ground is usually a secluded wooded area and may have a public toilet nearby. Cottaging is an activity where men will meet and have sex in public toilets. A gay sauna or bathhouse is a venue where gay men go to meet other gay men to relax and have sex.

If you think you have a sexually transmitted Infection (STI), want to talk about contraception, or talk about precautionary measures for HIV, there are sexual health clinics locally. They will give you the support and help that you and your partner/s need.

Here you will find health support services that are available to support people with their health, in consideration of their sexuality or gender identities.
