Schweitzer Fellows Alexander Martos and Jeffrey Williams were featured April 12 in Edge on the Net, a national online publication covering news of interest to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
Both Fellows are graduate students at the University of California School of Public Health and both collaborated on a sexual health project this year with the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Health Center.
May marks the end of an innovative Alfred Schweitzer Fellowship project geared toward fostering greater awareness and open communication in sexual health issues among gay and bisexual males.â¦“Both the administration at the Center and the community members were excited that space could be used to talk about sexuality and how it relates between two men,” said Martos. “This has not been available before, because everything has been about HIV specifically — how to protect yourself and not get HIV. It was great to have a conversation that kind of takes away that taboo of talking about sex in a frank and vulnerable manner.”
