Patrick Cash runs the popular London event Let’s Talk About Gay Sex & Drugs, a community forum designed to tackle chemsex in the city. He also works as a Patient Champion for sexual health clinic 56 Dean Street, where his job entails engaging patient cohorts in differing methods so as to better their sexual wellbeing. He will talk about the chemsex issue amongst MSM in London and other large cities of UK, analyse the origins of the issue, and look at how community engagement may be used as a valid alternative to the chillout scene.

As we’re welcoming you to Sexpression:UK’s only Welsh branch the theme for this year’s social is Welsh (no sheep please, be creative!) An evening meal will take place at FeD Cardiff, which is a fantastic all you can eat buffet located about 15 minutes walk away from our venue. You will then have time to get changed and ready before the social starts in The Lodge in the SU!
