We have a GD guest! Clint Finch joins us on June 21st to discuss his work with the DC Crystal Meth Working Group and the drugs impact and affects in the LGBT community.
Clint Finch is chair of the DC Crystal Meth Working group, a Center group dedicated to catalyzing and advancing a LGBT response to meth in Washington. As an 18-year resident of the District, Clint has witnessed the evolution of trends and attitudes about drug and alcohol addiction and HIV in the city. His experience as a recovering meth addict, HIV+ gay man, and research professional give Clint a unique perspective on addiction issues in the LGBT community and how they relate to HIV.
Chris will be speaking about crystal meth addiction in general, focusing specifically on current trends in usage, options for recovering or reducing harm, and the relationship between meth and HIV.
If there are questions you would like answered by Clint please forward them in a private message or via email at GD@GayDistrict.Org. identities concealed unless otherwise stated.
Remember, we will be meeting at The DC Center. Discussion starts at 8:30pm and will be followed by a light bite to continue conversation and perhaps a late night bar crawl or whatever else we can get ourselves into!
