At Essie's Place, we're committed to enhancing the well-being of gay, bisexual, and queer men through our dedicated GBQ+ Men's Health Resources. This initiative offers a comprehensive range of services and information designed to support the physical, mental, and emotional health of GBQ+ men in the Shuswap Region. From accessing cutting-edge PrEP and PEP services to participating in educational workshops and connecting with inclusive healthcare providers, our resources are tailored to meet the diverse needs of the community. We provide a safe, affirming space where GBQ+ men can find support, knowledge, and a sense of belonging. Join us in fostering a healthier, more informed, and connected GBQ+ community.


At Essie's Place Men's Project, we believe in the power of shared experiences and insights to foster a stronger, more inclusive community. That's why we conduct surveys specifically designed for GBQ+ men in the Shuswap Region. By participating, you contribute valuable information about your habits, lifestyle, and experiences. This data is pivotal in shaping our services and initiatives, ensuring they are responsive, relevant, and effective. Your voice helps us gain a deeper understanding of the community's needs, leading to targeted improvements and impactful change. Join us in this collaborative effort to enhance the lives of GBQ+ men—your input is not just valuable, it's essential.
