BE-LONGING FOR IT is a digital art story telling project exploring meth use, sex, and intimacy among gay, bi, and queer men.
Eight gay, bi, and queer men have shared their personal stories of using meth and the deeper human experiences connected to their sexuality. The work, based on comic illustrations, explores themes of sexual identity, finding community, seeking connection, intimacy, mental health, risk taking behaviours, stigma, drug use, harm reduction, sex, living with HIV and the desire for belonging.
